Happy Valentines Day from United Way! #LiveUnited #LoveUnited
United Way of North Central Ohio kicked off a busy morning yesterday with the Wyandot Chamber of Commerce! Executive Director Amber Wertman, along with Resource Development Director Leslie Schneider and United Way of Wyandot County Resource Development Coordinator Pam Morral, attended the Chambers Economic Forecast Breakfast before heading to meet with our Wyandot funded partners. One of the collaborative partners we met with had just been a featured speaker at the breakfast - Greg Moon is the executive director of the Wyandot County Office of Economic Development and administers the United Way-funded Community Opportunity program in Wyandot County!
As part of our RBA (Results-Based Accountability) funding framework, our partners answer these questions for us throughout the year, providing important details about the structure & success of their funded programs. This gives us the data we need to ensure we are leveraging our donor dollars in a way that makes the largest (and most lasting) collective impact on our communities. The same questions also figure heavily in the annual partner application process.
Check out Community Opportunity for access to all of the great job openings in Wyandot County! (And employers, this is a great recruiting tool to make sure you are reaching a wide local audience - take a look!) #bettertogether #BoldGoal3

We were joined this morning by more than 80 board members and staff from local non-profit organizations for an inspiring and interactive exploration of board governance, led by BoardSource certified facilitator Susan Decker. Susan encouraged lively discussions about external and internal forces affecting our organizations, structuring strategic board meetings to support engagement, and ensuring a range of diversity on our boards through recruiting and orienting new members. Group exercises helped reinforce the the roles in a constructive board/staff partnership, and helped us identify the next steps toward good governance for our organizations. So many great takeaways - well share more soon! Thanks again to Hord Family Farms  & Crawford Works for their hospitality, and to The Olson Vincent Sharma Group Merrill Lynch Wealth Management for sponsoring todays training!
