Volunteer Leadership

The board of directors is ultimately accountable for United Way of Hall County’s performance, reputation, and stature in our community. Through excellence in organizational leadership and governance, United Way is a mission-driven organization, where staff and volunteers are passionate, focused and aligned to achieve goals. United Way of Hall County has a reputation for integrity, transparency and accountability. The volunteer board of directors is effective in setting direction for the organization, ensuring necessary resources are available (i.e., human, financial, relationship) and providing oversight of programs, finances, legal compliance, and values.
United Way of Hall County establishes short- and long-term goals and identifies strategies to accomplish them. Strategies are based on data and analysis, address United Way’s selected priority issues, and drive resource development, marketing, financial and operational plans as well as staff work plans and accountability. United Way assesses progress annually and makes changes as warranted.
