THE 2020 united way of the ozarks' Annual Meeting has been cancelled.
United Way of the Ozarks
Annual Meeting & Recognition Luncheon Update
On Monday, March 16th, we convened CEOs and other senior representatives from our partner agencies to discuss how we can work together to support our community in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. We also conducted “scenario planning” to determine how we can work collectively to anticipate and better respond to a series of possible futures. I am very proud of our partner agencies and how they are willing and able to work together, whether during their day-to-day operations or in a crisis. During that meeting, we collectively identified a series of current and upcoming fiscal needs associated with our coronavirus response:
- Funding for operational costs – The COVID-19 response is increasing demand for their services at the same time it is reducing their capability to host their fundraisers.
- Supplies – The shortages of supplies that we are all experiencing at home are the same shortages that our partner agencies are experiencing. We are working with them to coordinate their supply needs and will soon post a master list on www.uwozarks.org in case you want to help.
We would also like to thank the White River Conference Center for their understanding and flexibility in allowing us to cancel this event due to exceptional circumstances. We look forward to hosting our Annual Meeting there in 2021.
Please reserve April 14, 2021 on your calendar now!
