Boys & Girls Club Adds Local Business Leaders to Board

Community leaders bring diverse backgrounds and expertise to local organization

 
PRLog - Jul. 6, 2012 - OXNARD, Calif. -- Two community leaders have joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme’s board of directors, as part of the organization’s goal to continually promote diversity among its leadership. The new members are Kim Wilson, chief operating officer and vice president of St. John’s Regional Medical Center, and David Wellik, vice president and commercial banking officer at Rabobank.
   “Our board continues to be representative of the variety of businesses that are present within our community,” said BGCOP Chief Professional Officer Tim Blaylock. “As we continue to recruit board members from different industries and backgrounds, we discover new best practices for serving the children and families in Oxnard and Port Hueneme.”  
   A veteran financial analyst, Wellik is responsible for fostering new business relationships with local companies and providing solutions to their banking needs. Growing up in West Ventura, he benefited from the after-school programs offered by his local Boys & Girls Club.
Wilson brings 28 years of healthcare leadership experience to St. John’s Regional Medical Center, where she is responsible for the daily operations of the Center’s Oxnard facility. Her experience in leadership roles is a key asset to the BGCOP board.
   The Club currently serves nearly 9,000 members between the ages of 6 and 18 at its three full-service facilities, and 15 other locations in partnership with a local school district, a public housing complex and a juvenile detention center. Membership costs only $15 per year for all programs and support, and no child is ever turned away due to inability to pay. The actual cost of delivering its programs is about $500 per year, per child.
By involving parents, volunteers, educators and the business community, The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme helps youth reach their full potential through a positive environment, lifelong learning and programs dedicated to the arts, education, character and leadership development, health and recreation. Programs are based on physical, emotional, cultural and social needs, and are designed to expand participants’ areas of interest. For more information, visit www.positiveplace4kids.org.
