From the NAYDO Chair: A Season of Change

Message from the NAYDO Chair  

A Season of Change  

Dear Members,

Fall is in the air. Cooler weather. Changing leaf colors. Shorter days. The start of NAYDO’s new membership year. The holidays will be here before we know it.

As we move into the season of giving, I want to propose two actions each of us can take. First, let’s give to each other this year. Share your Y passion! Time with NAYDO, whether virtually at a network event or in-person at our conference, is the perfect place to contribute your experience, expertise, ideas, and successful tactics. The more we share, the more we all improve, and the more our Ys and our communities will benefit.

Secondly, take time for a moment (or two or three …) of gratitude. We talk about showing our gratitude to our donors. But, what about our family, friends, co-workers, NAYDO colleagues, volunteers who take on extra duties, and many others who assist us, share resources, or provide time to listen and offer suggestions?

In spite of these crazy times, there is much – and many people –  for which we are thankful. Let them know. I want to thank our extraordinary NAYDO Council, all conference volunteers, and each and every NAYDO member for your efforts to keep us relevant, responsive, and resilient.

I challenge you to find at least one way to become more involved in NAYDO in 2021-2022. We’ll all benefit from it, and for that I am most grateful.

In Y service,
Zane Korytko
