     Members of the Advisory Board often include current or retired bankers, public relations advisors, marketers, small business owners, government leaders, members of the clergy, realtors, industrialists, small business owners, leadership of fire and police departments, people from the medical professions, educational administrators and teachers, journalists, accountants, attorneys, architects, computer/tech workers, and many other types of leaders.

     The common thread is their strong support of and belief in The Salvation Army and its charitable work on behalf of those most in need, and their willingness to work hard to be certain the Waukesha salvation Army succeeds. The Advisory Board generally meets ten times per year, plus members are appointed to and serve on various working committees.

     Members assist and advise the local Corps Officers on policy, programming, finances, public relations, facilities management, legal issues, real estate concerns, short- and long-range planning, problem solving, visioning of the future of the Corps, its volunteers, its staff, its priorities, its funding, its reputation in the community, and extending its reach with new volunteers, new donors, and new community supporters.
