The Board of Directors of the Washington County Family YMCA has started the search for a new CEO. A committee has been appointed to coordinate the search, screen candidates and conduct interviews, said Board President Aaron Weller.
Interim CEO Beth Armstrong has elected not to apply for the position. She is leaving the organization to work in the crop and farm insurance field. “The CEO position is a great opportunity for a person who has management experience and a heart to serve the needs of youth and families in Washington County”, said Armstrong.
“I have loved every minute that I have worked for the Youth First and the YMCA. This decision has not been without struggle. I am at the point where I feel a need to be more available for my family and I have missed working in agriculture,” she said. “I love the YMCA & Youth First and will always be one of the organization’s biggest supporters and plan to continue volunteering.”
Armstrong currently serves as the Youth First Director and Interim CEO of the YMCA. She will continue in these positions until both positions are filled and she can assist the new candidates in their transition.
“We are indebted to Beth for the outstanding job she’s done both as Youth First director and as Interim CEO,” said Weller. “She is a great leader and the Y is stronger because of her. We thank her for her service and look forward to working with her in the future.”
Weller said resumes are currently being accepted for the CEO position. The deadline to apply for the position is March 18. He said the board plans to choose a new CEO by late spring. The Youth First position will be posted at a later date. Candidates interested in the CEO position are encouraged to apply online at http://tinyurl.com/washingtoncounty-ymca-ceo
