    [VtSHARES Coordinating Committee]

    WHEREAS, for many years Vermont state employees have joined with other citizens in support of voluntary charitable services;

    WHEREAS, state employees share feelings of civic responsibility and deserve the same opportunity as their neighbors employed in the private sector or by the federal government to discharge that responsibility efficiently and with the knowledge that their charitable contributions will be used accountably and in a way that will provide maximum benefits; and

    WHEREAS, organized charitable campaigns are permitted under 29 V.S.A. § 5.

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that I, Peter Shumlin, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Governor of the State of Vermont, do hereby re-establish and re-constitute the "State Employee Combined Charitable Appeal Committee" as the VtSHARES Coordinating Committee and order as follows:

     I. Composition, Appointments, and Process

    The VtSHARES Coordinating Committee shall consist of the Secretary of Administration and at least four other persons appointed by the Governor who will serve at the pleasure of the Governor. The Governor may delegate his appointment authority under this Order to the Secretary of Administration.

    The Committee shall be chaired by the Secretary of Administration or his or her designee. The Committee shall meet at the call of the Chair and may designate additional committees as necessary to administer the VtSHARES campaign.

    The Agency of Administration shall provide administrative support to the Committee.

     II. Charge

    The Committee shall review and, if approved by the Governor, make arrangements for the VtSHARES campaign and other such organized charitable campaigns as the Committee deems appropriate to solicit funds from state employees at their places of employment or duty stations. In making these arrangements, the Committee shall consult with appropriate interested persons, organizations, state agencies and departments.

    Upon authorization of an organized charitable campaign by the Committee, the Committee shall recommend appropriate action or authorization of the campaign by the Governor pursuant to 29 V.S.A. § 5.

     III. Effective Date

    This Executive Order shall take effect upon signing.

    Dated October 7, 2014
