Volunteer Leadership

United Way of East Central Iowa works, in large part, because of its volunteer leadership. Whether volunteers are on the board of directors, board of trustees or one of the many United Way committees, these community leaders devote their time and talents to make sure United Way can help those most in need. This page shares with you our volunteer leadership.
