The Loaned Executive Program is one of the most comprehensive management and leadership programs in San Angelo. Many of our Loaned Executives have gone on to top management positions within their companies.
Each year corporations and small business "loan" their employees to United Way of the Concho Valley on a part-time basis to act as community spokespersons for our Annual Campaign and to assist other businesses with their United Way employee campaigns.
The Loaned Executives participate in team building and training programs during the summer in preparation for the Annual Campaign that begins in the fall. They also visit United Way Community Partners to get a firsthand look at how our organization impacts our community.
