Area of Y Involvement: Board member

"In 2019, Downtown had various issues we needed to navigate with construction, struggling membership, parking issues, and a depleted Advisory Board. Brian had only been on the board for a few months in 2018 and agreed to be the Board Chair in 2019. He has provided great leadership to re-establish and re-energize our board, implemented a much-needed committee structure, increased board attendance at meetings and provided a vision to re-engage the Downtown community." —Scott Clinton, District Executive Director, Downtown YMCA–Burkholder Center
