Are you interested in becoming more involved with Women United? Do you know a Women United member who would be excellent in a Committee role?
Women United is a volunteer organization. We need fabulous women to round out our Committees. If you or someone you know has the talent and enthusiasm for anything described below, we want to hear from you!
Programming Committee: The Programming Committee provides dedicated experiences for Women United members and prospective members through events. Important aspects of this Committee are speaker and topic selection and working closely with Events & Logistics. To volunteer or nominate a friend, please contact Maia Bannan or Jennifer Feist.
Event & Logistics Committee: This committee coordinates with the Program Committee and Membership to support our events. Opportunities include event planning, venue coordination, menu selection, decor and day-of logistics. If you are good at working with venues and have an eye for detail, this committee is for you. Please contact Carolyn Cullen to volunteer or nominate a friend.
Communications & Marketing Committee: Keeping the membership and our community up to date with Women United involves writing and editing skills, website maintenance, direct mail design, and email communication. We welcome anyone with skills or interest in media relations, marketing, social media, writing, or graphic design. Please contact Deborah Conway to volunteer or nominate a friend.
Membership Committee: The Membership Committee is not only responsible for new member recruitment, but also for engaging and retaining our current members. Working closely with Communications and Programming, we are looking for new, creative ideas to engage our members and increase event and committee participation. Please contact Kim Martin to volunteer or nominate a friend.
Grant Committee: The 2017 Grant Cycle is in full swing, with our largest Grant Committee ever. We will be awarding $50,000 in grants this year. The Grant Committee has reviewed proposals from more than 15 local non-profits and are in the on-site visit phase. We will start building our 2018 Grant Committee in the fall of 2017. Look for an invitation to join the 2018 Grant Committee in the fall. Allyn Gutauskas and Jennifer Lehman are the current co-chairs.
Women United’s mission is to engage with like-minded women, learn about philanthropy, and leverage collective giving. With your help, we have awarded almost 1/2 a million dollars to local non-profits. Thank you!
