Williams named Senior Director of Program Development at YMCA

BLOOMINGTON – The Bloomington-Normal YMCA has appointed Betsy Williams as Senior Director of Program Development.

Williams has worked in a youth and community-focused capacity throughout her career, including serving as a fifth-grade teacher and director of programs that have contributed to children’s academic and emotional development. Williams has experience advising on curriculum development and working as a liaison with families to help their children secure their future.


“I am excited and happy to join the Y team, but it is an incredible honor and a humbling experience to have had the opportunity,” Williams said in a press release. “In the short time I have been here, I have already been blown away by the culture and community that exists among the staff.”

According to a press release, the YMCA believes Williams’ skills will be a boon to its trustees, helping them develop programs in their areas of expertise to better meet the needs of the community. She will also help the YMCA branch out into unfamiliar programming areas to better serve its membership base.

“Community service and outreach have always been my passions,” Williams said. “From my very first interview here, I was immediately drawn to the sense of community and shared mission. I hope the work I do with these incredibly capable administrators will engage our current members and attract new members while by serving the community at large. I look forward to making a difference and connecting with members of the Y community.”

“Betsy’s knowledge, ability and confidence make her a tremendous asset to our YMCA,” said BJ Wilken, Executive Director and CEO of the Bloomington-Normal YMCA. “I am thrilled that she is engaging with other nonprofit leaders and sharing YMCA resources with members of our community.”
