United Way of Bemidji Area’s Executive Director Denae Alamano was named the President of the United Way of Minnesota Board of Directors.
“United Ways of Minnesota works collaboratively to better communities across the state through best practices, advocacy, and collaborative communications,” Director of the state United Way Doris Pagelkopf said.
“We are very excited to have Denae at the helm of our board of directors, with her track record of building needed initiatives and growing community support in the Bemidji area.”
The state organization prioritizes sharing and exchanging best practices, successes, resources and management across local United Ways, with the board of directors addressing executive and legislative issues, as well as training and communications across the state.
“I look forward to working with other area United Ways to find common issues and solutions that we can improve upon at a state and local level,” said Alamano, who first joined the United Way of Minnesota Board of Directors in 2019.
