What, When & Why the Y
Who: Jeffrey E. Poindexter
Where: Bulkley, Richardson and Gelinas, LLP, Partner
What: Board of Directors, Chair & Member YMCA of Greater Springfield
When: Jeff has been a member at the YMCA of Greater Springfield for the past 15 years at the Scantic Valley branch. During that time he joined the Board of Directors where he has held the position of Chairperson and is in second year of his second two-year term.
Why the Y: "It has been a pleasure working with such a wonderful and competent team in my two terms as Chair. The first term was spent working with the team to bring the YMCA back to financial strength and the second working and successfully transitioning into a new era with a brand new facility, including a new fitness center and day care facilities. It is great to see our more urban demographic have access to state-of-the-art facilities, unbelievable staff and an overall great operation. Although COVID-19 has slowed our progress a bit, we will not stop us from carrying out the mission of the YMCA. I look forward to continuing to be a part of this organization for a long time to come."
