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:

John Hagen, Ph.D., President

John lives with his wife Rebecca in Guilford, VT. He recently retired from the Air Force, where he served at West Point and at  UMass Amherst, training cadets to be leaders of character. He received his PhD in international relations from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. John and Rebecca currently run an academic coaching business for ambitious undergraduates. When he was younger, John spent his summers at YMCA Camp Abnaki in North Hero. He credits the YMCA with reinforcing critical values and social skills. John believes the Meeting Waters YMCA provides similar experiences for area youth and he is very interested in leading the Y to be a valuable community partner.
