Volunteer Role


Campaign Leaders:  Department Executives & University Chairs


Primary responsibility for planning agency and university campaigns is vested with Department Executives, who are appointed each year by their agency head, and with University Chairs, appointed by the Chancellors at each of the state’s 16 campuses that comprise the consolidated university system. The President of the NC School of Science & Mathematics also appoints an individual to lead and direct their institution’s annual campaign. These volunteer leaders are typically senior and executive staff in their respective settings, and they assure the smooth operation of their agency and university campaigns. These campaign leaders recruit volunteers who serve as "team captains" (campaign coordinators or division leaders); they plan and conduct volunteer training; they sponsor special events in promoting and marketing the campaign; they plan charity fairs; and they develop volunteer recognition programs to convey appreciation for volunteers’ time and effort.


Volunteers are vital to the SECC!
