Pamela Anderson:

“I have an affinity for the YMCA and believe that my board involvement aligns with my core values and I look forward to partnering with other board members and staff to further support and raise awareness of the impact that the YMCA has on our community.”

Vincent Ash:

Indiana Economic Development Corporation - Chief of Staff

“The YMCA takes a wholistic approach to prioritizing physical, personal and spiritual health in the community. This wholistic approach creates generational change. I know this from my personal experience growing up in my community center and that's why I am passionate about parks, youth programming, health, which are all components of the YMCA.”

Adam Broderick:

Lauth Group Inc. - COO

“The YMCA offers the opportunity to serve my community and has a physical fitness & sports component which aligns with one of my passions. Advancing the Y's goals and growth will provide more communities and individuals the opportunity to achieve fitness goals. I hope I have a small hand in continuing the mission and providing an outlet for more Hoosiers.”


Eric Cole:

Indianapolis Colts - Corporate Partnership Executive

“My interest in joining the board is simply to help leave a positive impact on the greater Indianapolis community and advancing the vision of the YMCA. Learning more and understanding the impact that the YMCA has had on the community through sport, training, education, etc. has fueled my interest even more. I want to help tell the YMCA story and help positively impact other families for years to come.


Chris Cook:

The Farmers Bank - President & CEO

“I have seen all the good the YMCA does in the communities they serve. I enjoy making connections and telling the Y story. I hope to add value and help move the Y forward.”


Dave Cooper:

“I believe in the YMCA mission and its impact on our local community. I’m excited to bring my skills to challenge, encourage and influence the right decisions that will fulfill the mission of the YMCA. Also, I plan to use my position on the board to share the Y story with others in my network.”


Tracy Ellis-Ward:

Pacers Sports & Entertainment - SVP Diversity Equity & Inclusion

“The YMCA was my childhood haven, where I learned to swim and discovered a sense of belonging. In later years, as a widow, its affordability remained a beacon of support and solace. Through life's ups and downs, the YMCA has been more than just a facility; it's been a lifeline to hope and resilience.”


Tim Martin:

TWM Consulting LLC - Independent Consultant

“I am passionate about the YMCA and its mission. My involvement with the YMCA as an adult has impacted me greatly. My YMCA experience both here in Indiana and in Connecticut has demonstrated to me the breadth of impact that the Y has made and I have enjoyed seeing people get the support and engagement that they need. I am happy to serve.”


Ryan Poor:
