The United Way of Elgin Announces the 2012 Campaign Cabinet
Wednesday July 25th, 2012
As the United Way of Elgin prepares to launch its 2012 Campaign, the staff and volunteers first pause to give thanks and appreciation for all the support we have received in the past year from local businesses and residents. We could not do our work without the help and encouragement of the community.
At a planning retreat in February, the United Way of Elgin Board of Directors committed to taking a more active role in resource development and returning to the all-volunteer campaign cabinet. And, that’s just what they’ve done.
We are proud to announce that the 2012 Campaign Chairs are Dan Walter of Lundstrom Insurance and Glenn Murphy, a community volunteer. The chairs’ responsibilities are to oversee the entire campaign, plan and implement strategies for successful fundraising efforts, and to make sure that all United Way supporters are aware of the importance of their investment and appropriately thanked for their generous contributions.
The Campaign Cabinet is made up of volunteers who will work with various divisions representing our entire community. These chairs will recruit volunteers from the community-at-large to help advocate and facilitate United Way of Elgin’s message across all platforms, and to assist businesses in conducting their employee campaigns. Division Chairs and their respective divisions are:
- Mark Seigle, Seigle’s Cabinet Center is chair of the Manufacturing Division.
- Laurie Totton, Sherman Hospital, and Scott Budd, Edward Jones Investments, are chairs of the Commercial Division.
- Jennifer Rakow of IHC Construction Companies is chair of the Construction Division.
- Cherie Murphy, City of Elgin, and Glenn Theriault, Elgin Police Department, are chairs of the Public Administration Division.
- Donna Ackerman, Provena St. Joseph Hospital, and Pastor Nat Edmond, Second Baptist Church, are chairs of the Health Care Division.
- Mike Brown, THE National Bank, and Dr. David Sam, Elgin Community College, are chairs of the Finance Division.
“The level of enthusiasm is very high and this year’s group of campaign volunteers is committed to raising both awareness of United Way’s role in the community and increased financial resources to support our work,” said Lynne Bosley, United Way President. “I know they will be successful because they are respected leaders who care deeply about our community and know how to get things done.”
