The Greater Boston YMCA and specifically its Dorchester branch will see new leadership in 2013, according to a release from the organization.
Jennifer A. Nassour, the former chairwoman of the Massachusetts Republican Party, will take over as the interim chair of the board of advisors at the Dorchester YMCA.
Located on Washington Street, the Dorchester YMCA also formally welcomes Kathy Townsend as its executive director. Townsend was previously with the Greater Hartford YMCA, according to the release.
“Kathy and I look forward to working together to expand the services offered to the community through the Dorchester YMCA,” Nassour said in a statement. “We are committed to making a difference in the lives of youth and families and look forward to collaborating with this dynamic group of women as well as the other strong volunteer board members and our partnering organizations to help shape the surrounding community.”
