Part of what makes United Way Perth-Huron strong is our committed volunteers working behind the scenes to ensure the organization continues moving forward and serving Perth-Huron. Now, we are looking to add a new treasurer and a director from Huron County to its board.
“As a non-profit, we rely on a strong group of passionate volunteers to help steer the organization,” said Ryan Erb, United Way Perth-Huron executive director. “Our current treasurer, Howard Minett, has done great work for the organization. We appreciate his commitment to United Way and his hard work as treasurer over the past two years. If anyone is interested in taking on this important role, we encourage them to reach out and learn more. We are always looking for new perspectives to add to our board.
“We also would like to add another director from Huron, which has seen tremendous growth within United Way. We want to continue to ensure voices from both Perth and Huron are heard as we continue addressing the issues that matter to each region.”
As a key member of the board of directors, the treasurer is responsible for chairing the Audit & Finance committee and reporting back to the board. The treasurer also consults on budget and investment matters for the organization and acts as a signing officer. The board member from Huron would be part of a team contributing to the overall vision and direction of the organization. Board terms are three years, with members normally serving two terms.

“We are always on the lookout for people who want to make a positive impact locally,” added Erb. “We encourage anyone interested in serving their community through United Way to consider these opportunities.”
