Subject:United Way of America's New President and CEO
Date:Tue, 6 Nov 2001 07:26:16 -0800 (PST)

Hello Members,
We received the following information from United Way of America on
yesterday, and wanted to share!

United Way Leaders,

United Way of America's (UWA's) Board of Governors met this afternoon to
consider the Executive Search Committee's recommendation regarding UWA's
next President and CEO. It is with great pleasure that I report that we
have unanimously named Brian A. Gallagher, currently President of United Way
of Central Ohio in Columbus, Ohio, as our new President and CEO of UWA.
Brian is a well-known and highly respected leader.

To formally introduce you to Brian in his new role, I am convening a series
of conference calls tomorrow, Tuesday, November 6, 2001, in advance of the
announcement to the media and press. We anticipate a large volume of
participants on these calls, so we ask that you call during your region's
assigned time and 15 minutes in advance of the call. Additionally, we ask
that you coordinate a single conference call from your United Way such that
all volunteers and staff from your community can participate on one line.
Your cooperation will make it possible for the maximum number of your
colleagues from across the country to participate on these important calls.
Please note the regional conference call assignments:

Mid-America Region: 10:00 a.m., Eastern Standard Time
Dial (800) 310-8725 and ask to be connected to the United Way call moderated

If you are unable to participate during your assigned time slot, you can

Eastern Standard Time tomorrow to listen to the replay of the 10:00 a.m.
conference call. This replay will be available 24 hours per day until 5:00
p.m., Eastern Standard Time, on Friday, November 9, 2001. If you have any
questions in the meantime, please contact Diane Grzyb-Soper at
diane.grzyb@uwa.unitedway.org or (800) 892-2757, Ext. 853.

Tomorrow morning we will e-mail you a press kit with a release, biographical
information, questions and answers, message strategy, and fact sheets
regarding UWA and the United Way movement. You will also receive a first
communication from Brian Gallagher regarding his new role.

Please join me in thanking the members of the Executive Search Committee,
including Cuba Wadlington who chaired the committee, and Paula Harper
Bethea, Mary Finger, Michael Lomax, Sherman McCorkle, Dimon McFerson, Jackie
Martin, Bill Meyer, Mike Morgan, and Roberto Santa Maria. Also, I would
like to extend a special thanks to Chris Amundsen and the UWA staff team who
worked with Korn/Ferry International on the search process. And, of course,
please join me in congratulating Brian.
