Robin McDougald, Event Committee Chair, Texas First Bank
The duties of the Event Committee Chair plays an intricate role in the event committee both within the organization and the community. The event chair will be tasked with leadership responsibilities as well as delegating certain responsibilities to the committee members. The role of the Event Committee Chair will be served by a member of the volunteer committee; however, a committee member who is employed by a partner agency will not be eligible for nomination. The chair’s term will be served for one year; they will be elected by members of the committee in the first meeting after the United Way Annual Meeting each year. The chair must rotate a new member each year; therefore the chair may not serve a consecutive term. The event committee will meet at least 6 times a year and it is the responsibility of the chair to be at all meetings as well as the planning of each meeting.
