From the NAYDO Chair: So Much to Offer Your Staff and Volunteers

by Zane Korytko on October 4, 2022


Dear NAYDO Members,

The NAYDO Council met virtually in early September. One discussion item was unanimous: NAYDO has so much to offer our Ys, but we need to do more to get everyone plugged in. NAYDO membership is not just for those going to the conference. From fundamentals to 10 networks, monthly webinars to the Young Professionals Class of 2023, volunteer opportunities to awards … it all is available to you year round as a NAYDO member.  

NAYDO can help to:
• Teach the basics or a specific aspect of philanthropy
• Spark new ideas
• Connect volunteers and staff in similar positions
• Learn from YMCA experts
• Launch innovative philanthropy (2023 Conference April 11-14)

If you received this issue of eDevelopments, you activated your benefits for the NAYDO year (September 2022-August 2023). There may be staff and volunteers at your own Y who have not.

So others in your Y can be aware of the networks, webinars, conference, and more, forward this newsletter and invite them to sign up for NAYDO news using this link. A name and email are all that’s needed to get started. You can register for the conference at the same time!

There is no limit to the number of staff and volunteers who can get engaged! Help us spread the word. Keep reading to find out what is coming up and how you can increase your role in inspiring and strengthening the philanthropic culture of your YMCA. With year-round activities, NAYDO membership is an amazing value and return on your investment.

In Y service,
Zane Korytko
