Board of Directors

In 2009, the board was reconstituted to a maximum of 24 members (plus non-voting directors who represent United Way agencies, United Way Young Leaders, and Hands On Charlotte). This reduction in size (from 65+) ensures that all directors are hands-on and fully informed/engaged.

United Way executive director Sean Garrett reports to the board of directors listed below.
