WHAT: Join us on Thursday, June 20th at the Renaissance Hotel in Albany for dinner, networking and engaging conversation.

As the Alliance and Ys evolve with the new service delivery/member advancement system, we need YOUR INPUT to ensure that the future is strong for YMCAs in the Empire State! Your active participation, astute advice and adept leadership are necessary ingredients to ensure that the Alliance continues to serve YOUR YMCA to the best of our ability. This is our chance to come together and discuss what that collective vision of YMCAs looks like. The evening will include a cocktail reception, dinner and town-hall-style interactive discussion.

WHY: For Alliance’s work to be optimally beneficial, each Y must have a seat at the table. Literally.  With the extent of our effectiveness dependent upon engagement among YMCA staff and volunteer leaders, we want YOU to bring your vision, reflections and recommendations for New York so we can collectively and collaboratively shape our future together. 

WHO: We invite Y Chief Executive Officers, Chief Volunteer Officers, and Executive-level staff to join us for this important conversation.
