Dan Newhouse Leadership Award

Our goal is to recognize retired WI YMCA CEOs who have provided leadership to their respective YMCA community, the YMCA’s throughout the state and some CEO’s who have shared their expertise nationally. Each winter all 34 of the corporate YMCA’s will have an opportunity to nominate a retired WI YMCA CEO living or deceased to be recognized at the annual leadership conference that is held each fall. Annually at the YMCA Spring Executive Conference in WI Dells, all the CEO’s in attendance will vote on the top 2 CEO’s that we are going to recognize for the corresponding year. With several qualified retired CEO’s eligible for this recognition, we are sure that recognizing a minimum amount each year will ensure that this award goes on for a long time. Rob Johnson will email all CEOs the nomination information prior to the spring leadership conference.
