President & CEO

The President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the YMCA of Austin reports to the Metropolitan Board of Directors and has leadership responsibility for the Association’s vision and strategic direction, operations, values and guiding principles, growth, financial stability, community relations, staffing, financial development, and organizational planning.

The CEO should be readily capable of becoming a prominent figure in the community, highly knowledgeable about its opportunities, challenges, needs and resources and have (or be able to develop) a broad knowledge of the YMCA locally, nationally, and globally.

This position requires an inspiring leader who can collaborate effectively with staff, the board, community and local government leaders, members, donors, and volunteers. The CEO positions the YMCA as a partner and convener to address community issues. This position will require the skill sets and background to successfully navigate a multi-site, multi-program, complex organization through these pandemic-impacted times and beyond.
