Our Board Executives

The YMCA of Central Ohio is led by volunteers from across our community who have stepped up in their own way to steward our assets and direct us in our mission. We are honored to have had the following leaders on the Executive Committee of our Board of Trustees in 2023. Without their support, our response to and recovering from the year's events would not have been possible.
