Indiana’s YMCAs Announce Statewide Membership

May 1 will mark a historic day as Indiana’s YMCAs announced today the “My Y Is Every Y in Indiana” statewide membership reciprocity program.
According to a press release from the Kosciusko Community YMCA, “Recognizing that the Y is one movement and we want to encourage members to utilize the Y as often as they can in order to meet their health and wellness goals, we have turned our attention toward implementing a reciprocity program that provides the convenience necessary for Y members to utilize a Y in a different location when traveling, near a workplace, or in another region. This program allows active, full facility/full privilege members the flexibility to use all 43 Y facilities in Indiana and also increases the value of Y membership.”
Chad Zaucha, CEO of the Kosciusko Community YMCA, said, “Statewide membership reciprocity will allow the YMCA to collectively better serve adults, families and communities throughout Indiana.  We believe this is a value added benefit for our members and will lead to increased impact and access to life-changing YMCA programs.”
Through the reciprocity program, those holding membership at any of Indiana’s 43 membership associations will be treated as regular members at any other association, will be able to register for programs at member rates and will receive member benefits at each membership association. Y members interested in participating in the program should inquire at the Y in which they hold their membership (home Y), and will be required to use their home Y at least 51 percent of the time.
“The alliance of Indiana’s YMCAs is one of the nation’s strongest,” said Brent Wake, the executive director of the Indiana State Alliance of YMCAs. “We recognize our members’ and communities’ perception of there being One Y, and My Y Is Every Y builds on that perception to position us to be the backbone that supports Hoosiers’ meeting their health and wellness goals.”
