Our Board of Directors

Meeting Waters YMCA's Board of Directors is a group of volunteers committed to supporting the YMCA mission in the lower CT River Valley. They are morally and legally responsible for the financial health of the organization and are the primary guides for determining how its resources can best strengthen the foundations of community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Board members serve for three-year terms. Current members of the Board of Directors are:

Stacy Garciadealba, President, Springfield, VT

Stacy is the Windsor and Windham Counties' Outreach Specialist for Vermont 2-1-1, United Ways of Vermont.  She is the former Foster Parent Recruitment and Retention Specialist  for the Springfield District of the Vermont Department for Children and Families' Family Services Division. She is a former Y-ASPIRE Site Director and Y Day Camp activity leader. Stacy was the 2013 recipient of our Red Triangle Award for Outstanding Staff Leadership. In 2015, YMCA of the USA chose her as one of six young leaders to attend an international Y conference on conflict resolution and peace promotion held in the country of Georgia. 

"Every day I see children and families who are struggling in mind, body, and spirit. I see a lack of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. This results in increased child abuse and neglect, drug use and abuse, destroyed families, increases in crime, additional unfortunate health diagnoses, and the list could go on and on. BUT there is hope! When you have organizations like Meeting Waters YMCA that are committed to addressing these areas of need, you see positive change. This is the positive side that I have experienced, and why I am committed."
