Committee Descriptions
Communications
The Always United Communications Subcommittee leads the effort to create an identity, messaging and marketing and communications plans for the initiative. This subcommittee assists with the other sub-committees in designing and promoting any special event activities and advertising efforts. Staff at United Way executes the plans created by this subcommittee and ensures that they meet United Way guidelines.

Membership
The Always United Membership Subcommittee works to ensure that donors to United Way are given an opportunity to remain or become more engaged with the organization. This committee develops plans and works with United Way’s Campaign Committee to establish active engagement of retirees and soon to retire donors at companies that run a United Way annual campaign. The subcommittee also develops and works a plan to re-engage retiree donors who lost contact with United Way when they left the workplace. Additionally, membership by community residents will be encouraged.

Activities 
The Always United Activities Subcommittee recommends and creates activities designed to encourage participation by membership. These include volunteering, social and educational events, joint events with other United Way affinity groups. This sub-committee works with the other subcommittees to coordinate activities and ensure smooth execution of events.
