Sault YMCA seeks board members

Friday, June 13, 2014   by: Staff
The Sault Ste. Marie YMCA is recruiting new members for their Board of Directors which is responsible for the 
governance of the organization.
The ‘Sault Y’ focuses on Health, Fitness and Aquatics, Child Care, Community Services and so much more.
It has a Board of Directors which is made up of members from various sectors of the community.
The Board meets 8 – 10 times a year to discuss the charity’s business affairs and sets its overall direction.
Like most charities, the Sault Y is often asking people to come and volunteer in programs and member service areas but board work is slightly different; we are asking people to be part of the governance of our Association.
It’s a very exciting opportunity, particularly when the charity is so busy and when most people agree that our work in the community has never been more crucial.
“Our Board of Directors is comprised of to 15 people, and individual Directors are elected for a 3 year term of office. We want new faces, new ideas and new perspectives,” said Paul Glassford, who is the Chair of the Sault Ste. Marie YMCA Board. “We are particularly looking to round out the Board competencies with legal, engineering, cultural and philanthropic experience but would also encourage applications from others who believe they can contribute to our work.”
Cindy Ougler, Vice Chair of the Board and Chair of the Nominating Committee adds, “As a Board member, you contribute to how the association is managed from a high level. We make decisions about the organization’s finances, policy, and overall direction. It’s very important work and an exciting opportunity for people with the skills and experience.”
To find out how to apply for the Board please visit or for an informal discussion please call Kim Caruso, Chief Executive Officer at 705.945.5178, ext. 312.
Applications will be received up to July 31, 2014.

I was a member for years but the lack of a decent seniors rate forced me to make the decision to quit. Loved it but got too expensive.

They have 15 board members... who only stay for a max of 3 years... that's why they're always looking for people.

Great opportunity! The Y does a lot of good for our community.

Had been a member for years until the recent increase. Enough is enough.

Almost true they can do up to 3 terms in a row so that is 9 years. How many failed ceos have they had? And given the poor upper management killing the spirit of staff and memebers i cannot see why my donations to the united way are wasted like this

The Y used to be a "Family" facility where everyone had fun and worked together as a team. It is supposed to be an organization that helps people, especially ones with special needs. So sad to see that nobody cares about who gets to keep their jobs and who gets fired .... due to apparent budget cuts. The Y I used to know, cared about their staff and would never treat them with such disregard and disrespect. Why would anyone want to volunteer on a board in this type of environment? It is supposed to be the Young Men's Christian Association (Family YMCA). I loved being a part of this "family" as did my children. Unfortunately it's not the same place, which is such a disappointment. I hope that one day it will revive it's mission statement and be the great place it used to be ... growing, caring and concern for all!
