United Way’s Campaign Representative Program is vital to the success of our resource development campaign and workplace giving programs. Campaign Representatives are employees who are “loaned” to United Way for roughly 13 weeks, from mid-August through mid-November. Many local companies either lend a key member of their team to United Way or they provide us with a Campaign Representative position through a sponsorship gift that gives us either full-time or part-time help.
When an employee serves as a Campaign Representative, they receive:
- Professional training and practice in sales, presentation skills, leadership and negotiation
- Valuable contacts in the business community
- Involvement in solving community issues
- Opportunities for self-development resulting in a more polished, experienced and confident employee
If you are interested in sponsoring a representative or would like to become a representative yourself, please contact Annette Knox or call 901.433.4370.
