Board of Directors

The YMCA of Rock River Valley is governed by the Board of Directors who establish overall policy and provide direction to the growth and development of our organization. We are extremely fortunate to have a group of individuals who bring a wide variety of experience and expertise to the table. They are community leaders who are passionate about the Y and its programs, and give of their time, talent and treasure to support our mission. Furthermore, we have volunteers who serve on Community Advisory Councils at the branch level to provide support and guidance to staff.
