The Tri- County YMCA held its Annual Meeting on Monday, June 28. The Annual Meeting signals the end of the fiscal year and marks an opportunity to hear impact stories and reflect on the past 12 months. As of the meeting, the Tri-County YMCA reported having 1260 membership units, an 8% increase over June 2020. The YMCA also celebrated the ribbon-cutting and grand re-opening of its Re-Imagine your Y expansion.

Neil Weyer marked the end of his run as Chief Volunteer Officer.

“I'm grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to serve the Y and the Community for the past two years," he said. "It's been an exciting time as we were able to complete the Re-Imagine Your Y Campaign to further meet the needs of our service area. I also would like to say thank you to all of the YMCA staff. We are fortunate to have a great staff that excel in the positions they are in. I’m looking forward to working with the new executive committee to see how we can continue the great work the YMCA is doing for Dubois, Spencer, and Perry Counties.”

New board members were elected to a three-year term. Aleesha Lopez, Sandy Smith, Jeremy Lee and Reggie Hayes have joined the Board of Directors.

“I’m excited to work with each of the new board members," said CEO Mike Steffe. "They each bring a unique skill set and a passion for serving the community.”

The YMCA board will be led by incoming CVO Marty Kaiser.

“I appreciate the accomplishments of our outgoing president, Neil Weyer, who hands me the reins with a great Board of Directors and Y staff," Kaiser said. "I look forward to the challenge of guiding the Tri-County YMCA as we continue to improve our services to the residents of Dubois, Perry and Spencer counties. Finding additional ways to meet the needs of our communities will be a priority during my term as president.”

Gloria Rahman as board Vice President, Mallory Wendholt as Secretary and Brent Sternberg as Treasurer round out the Executive team for the YMCA.
