Associate Board


The YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago’s Associate Board is an engaged group of emerging business, professional, and civic leaders working collaboratively to advance the Y’s efforts to develop stronger communities. Leveraging their personal and professional skills and networks, members build awareness of the Y’s mission, support Y programs, and contribute to the ongoing development of the board. Please take a look at our roster here.

Each year, the board supports dozens of YMCA volunteer events across the city and suburbs, and hosts a variety of fun and engaging fundraising events. In 2018, the board volunteered more than 300 hours of their time and raised more than $50,000 in support of Y children and families. The board proudly hosted its most successful fundraising event in 2018 - Halftime Happy Hour - and we will continue this annual event on March 21, 2019.
