The Board is appointed by the chair to serve for three-year staggered terms to provide continuity to the campaign, along with top level support for the fund drive on a statewide basis. The Advisory Board meets bi-monthly via videoconferencing to monitor and assist the working committee. The SECA committee members are planning, developing, and implementing new campaign strategies at meetings throughout the year. The SECA Campaign is limited to eight weeks; however, in order to increase contributions, a significant infrastructure is needed to run an efficient campaign.
