January 28, 2020 - The YMCA of Coastal Georgia has announced that Brian Felder, founder and managing principal of Felder & Associates, has been appointed to the organization’s Corporate Board of Directors.

The YMCA of Coastal Georgia’s Association Corporate Board of Directors governs 10 YMCA facility locations and 55 Before & After School Enrichment sites spanning across a seven-county service area. Felder will serve a three-year term as a member of the Advancement Committee. This committee plays an active role in driving the philanthropic activities that are part of a strategic long term focus engaging all branches and communities.

“I have been a member of the YMCA since 1991 and am looking forward to being able to get involved on a new level,” Felder said. "As a board member, I will strive to support the goals of the YMCA of Coastal Georgia as an advocate and ambassador of its mission to build healthy spirit, mind and body in every community it serves.”

In addition to his new appointment with the YMCA of Coastal Georgia, Felder’s community involvement extends to serving as chair of the Revolving Fund Committee, which is responsible for buying, protecting and selling endangered historic properties in Savannah and Chatham County, and he is immediate past chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Historic Savannah Foundation.

“Brian’s professional experience and ability to offer guidance on business operations are assets to our Board that will only be compounded by his personal time, talents and connections within the community,” said Joel Smoker, president and CEO of the YMCA of Coastal Georgia. “A network of established relationships with community and business leaders both here in Savannah and throughout the Coastal Empire is essential to the long-term success of the YMCA of Coastal Georgia."
