When they say leaders are not born but made, they are undoubtedly talking
about people who volunteer. Besides offering an opportunity to express
or nurture leadership abilities, volunteering for The Salvation Army
helps stretch financial contributions further
and quite literally makes possible our many programs and services.

Advisory councils are The Salvation
Army's critical link to the communities in which we serve. The Salvation
Army seeks members who are representative of the community, and who
possess the leadership and personal traits to effectively serve and
represent The Salvation Army publicly. Member responsibilities vary
slightly from location to location, but include the following:
in raising funds and resources to assist The Army in carrying out
on long-term planning
the management of the affairs of The Army and ascertaining that it
is done in a businesslike, responsible and efficient manner
in the promotion of The Army through the media to the community
in reports to the community on programs and services
at least monthly except in some summer months; or
records of all official proceedings.
to regular meetings, members are often assigned to committees which
are of interest to them. Committee responsibilities involve additional
meetings and occasional project assignments between regularly scheduled
meetings of the council or board. While often board members are inducted
following nomination by a fellow board member, if you are interested
in serving on a Salvation Army board or council in your area,
