The YMCA of the Northwoods will have a new leader for the next few years.
Laurie Schlitt has been appointed as the Interim CEO for a two year term. Schlitt had previously been serving as Associate Executive Director and the Board of Directors says they are pleased with the operations under Schlitt the past 6 months.
She started at the YMCA of the Northwoods as a Membership and Marketing Director and was named to her executive director position in 2010.
Some highlights of her work include growing the annual Strong Kids Campaign events by more than 25%, lowering dues and opening the gymnastics studio. She credited the staff and volunteers at the Y for making all feel welcome.
On her new position, Schlitt says,”I am honored to accept the Interim CEO position and look forward to continuing the forward progress i have been fortunate to witness and be part of the past 6 years.”
