William W. Merrill, III will serve as Chair of the board of directors of United Way of Sarasota County

United Way of Sarasota County has a new Chair for its board of directors - William W. Merrill, III.

SARASOTA, FL, August 19, 2010 ( United Way of Sarasota County has a new Chair for its board of directors - William W. Merrill, III. Although Mr. Merrill may be new to this position, he is a familiar presence at United Way, having been involved with the local organization since 1981. He most recently served as Vice Chair of the board and chairs the major gifts committee. He and his wife Karen are members of United Way's Tocqueville Society.

"I am honored to be entrusted with this responsibility," said Merrill. "United Way is a cause that has always been close to my heart because it represents the community working together to help and provide for its own. With today's economy the way it is, more people than ever are depending on the services funded by United Way, and that is an awesome challenge. We have a solid group of smart, hard-working people on the board, and I'm confident that together we will meet whatever obstacles may lie ahead."

United Way of Sarasota County targets its efforts towards health and human services. Founded in 1947, the organization generated more than $3 million in 2009/10. Two of its critical initiatives include an early childhood development initiative called Success By 6 , and the Financial Stability Partnership , an ongoing effort to help hard-working people and their families achieve greater financial independence.

Merrill is a shareholder in the Sarasota-based law firm of Icard, Merrill, Cullis, Timm, Furen & Ginsburg, P.A.. He has a nationally recognized practice in land use, planning, transportation and environmental law, representing developers and lenders on complex matters at local, regional and state levels. He is a past president of the Sarasota County Bar Association and is actively involved in numerous civic and charitable organizations. Mr. Merrill has received the highest "AV" rating from MartindaleHubbard and has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America each year since 2007.
