YMCA of Regina members elect an expanded, renewed Board of Directors at AGM
Regina, January 12, 2018—The members of the YMCA of Regina have expanded and revitalized their Board of Directors at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) held last night at the YMCA’s Downtown Branch in Regina.
The new Board includes an even split of six veteran directors and six elected for the first time last night. Jason Carlston is the incoming Chair and Richard Morris will be moving into the Past Chair role to ensure a seamless transition.
“We are dedicated to delivering on our promise to members and our community,” said incoming Board Chair, Jason Carlston. “In electing this slate of nominees, our members have demonstrated their commitment to the renewal of our organization and the transition underway to advance the continuing success of the YMCA of Regina.”
Since the appointment of Interim CEO Darryl McKenzie last November to guide the transition, the Board has made steady progress on advancing the priorities of building organizational capacity and reputation, developing new governance, financial, brand and risk management practices, and supporting the recruitment of a permanent CEO.
In particular, the Board has established a CEO Selection Committee and is embarking on Stakeholder Consultations in mid-January. These meetings are designed to gather the thoughts and perspectives of members, childcare families, donors, volunteers, employees, and other community stakeholders in relation to what they are seeking in a permanent CEO.
Following the Consultations, the CEO Selection Committee will begin the process of active recruitment. The permanent CEO is expected to join the YMCA of Regina this summer.
