Dan Crocker - CEO Ashland Family YMCA - July 2019
Dan Crocker has officially begun his new role as CEO of the Ashland Family YMCA. Dan has served as the Resource Director for YMCAs in Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and parts of California for the last 11 years.  In this capacity, he has provided Ys with support in strategic planning, board development, campaign fundraising, capital expansion, staff training, human resources and general support for YMCA membership and programs.  Dan joined the national Y staff in 2008, leaving the CEO position at the YMCA of Marion & Polk Counties in Salem, Oregon, where he served for 10 years.   Prior to his move to Salem, Dan was with the YMCA of Greater Seattle for 10 years, serving as a Youth, Teen and Camp Director.
Dan began his Y career on Orcas Island in Washington State as the Assistant Camp Director at YMCA Camp Orkila.  After a few years as an assistant director, Dan was given the responsibility of running his own YMCA Camp in the south Puget Sound area at YMCA Camp Colman.  Dan has enjoyed a 31-year (and counting) YMCA career and credits his success to adhering to the YMCA core values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility while empowering people to lead and serve with humility and a clear sense of mission.
Dan and his wife Cathy have two children.  Aubrey is a sophomore at Southern Oregon University, where Dan, Cathy, and Cathy’s parents graduated from College.  Colman graduated from Oregon State University last year and has begun a career in non-profit work.  Before moving back to Salem, where Dan and Cathy were high school sweethearts, Cathy worked for the YMCA of Greater Seattle as an Urban Case Worker in downtown Seattle, the Membership Director at Seattle’s largest Y and the Values Development Director for the Seattle association.  In other words….when it comes to the Y, she gets it!  Dan and Cathy are looking forward to enjoying the lifestyle that Ashland has to offer and continuing their journey with the YMCA alongside a talented and committed group of staff and volunteers.
