Nonprofit Volunteers, Boards and Governance in Charlottesville

This is a busy week for us.

Jessica Snyder, our Volunteer Center director, is finalizing all the United Way Laurence E. Richardson Day of Caring projects, with the final volunteer teams choosing their projects today.

Our annual board retreat is this Friday. It is a time to reflect and to plan. At last year’s board retreat, our board members self-selected which of our three impact teams they would serve on: School Readiness, Self-Sufficiency or Community Health. Board members invested a lot of time and energy this past year investigating the issues and unmet needs in our community relating to their specific impact areas. Our board members have already shown their commitment to positive change and are energized for further
action.

Speaking of good board governance, the deadline for nominations for our United Way Nonprofit Awards of Excellence, for leadership or board governance, is this Friday, September 7. Find more information and nominating guidelines here.
