Throughout the United Way National Capital Area Campaign Year, member organizations have an opportunity to meet directly with campaign leaders, and generous private and public sector employees. To be considered for these opportunities, members must sign up for the Speakers Bureau and Member Tours Program. The program provides an opportunity to communicate directly with potential donors, including federal employees within the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC). Campaign donor access will be through charity fairs and a limited number of invitations to speak directly to employees in group meetings.
United Way NCA member organizations that wish to participate in the Speakers Bureau and Member Tours Program must agree to the following guidelines. Please provide the name and contact information of your representative at the bottom. For more information or questions contact Torrance Hucks regarding private sector opportunities and Levina Kim for CFC campaign opportunities. Please note that only United Way NCA member organizations are eligible to register for the Speakers Bureau and Member Tours Program.
