Message from UWPC Executive Director Beverly Prueter
The last five years have rapidly gone by and I have been blessed to be able to continue my community service work at the United Way of Pinal County. Serving as Executive Director, I have been able to work with a talented and community-oriented volunteer board of directors and staff and a tremendously committed group of partner agencies throughout the county. This job has truly been a gift. After some 51 years of United Way work, I have decided to retire. There is much to be done in Pinal County and significant need. The time is right for new leadership as we prepare to review the results of the Community Needs Assessment Survey and change direction if needed. I will remain as your director until the new director is in place and will continue to serve the board in other capacities as they wish.
Thank you for your support of United Way of Pinal County and of me. I am grateful that I have had the opportunity to serve the county. BJP
Message from UWPC Board President Keith McGlaughlin
The United Way of Pinal County Board of Directors has formed an executive search committee to develop plans for the future leadership and development of the organization over the next few months. Regular announcements will be made as the committee has information to share and is ready to accept applications for the position, how to submit them, and the outcome.
I want to express my thanks and that of the board for Beverly’s leadership. Her strong knowledge of the United Way system has helped us greatly and will be sorely missed. Beverly’s knowledge and dedication to Pinal County United Way has guided this United Way to a 66% increase in campaign donations mostly from new sources during her tenure as Director. We will miss that energy and will have to double our efforts to maintain the direction she has provided.
With change comes challenge and opportunity and our board and staff will be working for a strong future for United Way and its partners. We appreciate your support. KMcG
