United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley has a new board chair for the 2017-2018 campaign.
Steve Davis, president of Columbus Water Works, will serve as chair of the United Way Board of Directors, replacing Sallie Martin, an independent contractor for Columbus Travel Bureau.
Davis previously served as chair of the 2015-2016 United Way Campaign, a position held by Martin in 2014-2015.
United Way’s fiscal year begins on July 1. In addition to naming Davis as its new board chair, the organization also added two new board members: Cheryl Burns, chief financial officer of the Phenix City School System, and Lindsey Braxton, director of new business development for 2WR Architects.
“United Way has a tremendous impact in helping the Chattahoochee Valley,” said Braxton. “I’m excited to be a part of the United Way Board of Directors and help advance this great organization.”
Burns said: “I’ve seen what United Way does for the community in the past few years that I’ve lived here. I’m looking forward to being a part of the great team of volunteer Board Members.”
United Way President Scott Ferguson welcomed all three to their new positions.
“The community leaders that make up our volunteer Board of Directors make decisions that guide United Way as an organization, which in turn impacts our community in a big way,” he said. “We depend on our Board Members to help ensure that our organization takes the right steps to make the Chattahoochee Valley a great place for everyone in the community.”
