John Round Named 2014-2015 General Campaign Chair.
Round addressed a room full of campaign volunteers, partner agencies and companies who run campaigns at the annual Monadnock United Way Campaign Recognition Event. In accepting the position of General Campaign Chair, he stated, "Collective Impact, though new to MUW’s mission and daily work, is not a new concept for our Campaign. Each year hundreds of volunteers say YES to being a part of reaching our goal. Now think of the collective knowledge and experience that comes from over 60+ years of annual campaigns. Our directive, from the community that has entrusted us with the critical task of raising funds to support vital human services in the region, is to create an environment that allows you to find new ways of working together that produce even better outcomes." In closing, Round said, "So tonight I will offer what is perhaps the first pledge to the 2014-2015 Campaign, as I pledge to all of you that as General Campaign Chair, I will say YES - in every way possible – to help you produce even better outcomes."
