United Way agencies put their heads together

State meeting to be held at Los Alamos National Bank

By Kirsten Laskey

Sometimes the best way to move forward is to gather the “troops” and put your heads together to think of new strategies and forge tighter bonds.

United Way of Northern New Mexico is using this philosophy during the upcoming state conference this week.

United Way agencies from throughout New Mexico will attend the conference, which will be held Thursday and Friday in the Los Alamos National Bank boardroom.

During the conference, Donna Schroeder, United Way of Northern New Mexico executive director, said agencies share information about individual fundraising campaigns and discuss common areas of interest and concerns.

She added that the conference is rotated around the different agencies so everyone has the opportunity to show off their particular United Way agency and community.

So what does the local agency have to show off?

“One of our strengths has been that we have a very small staff (one executive director and two part-time employees) but we accomplish so much with our resources,” Schroeder said.

However, the local organization can learn a lot from its fellow agencies.
