Board of Directors

LCYC’s Board of Directors comes together with a broad variety of experiences, expertise and perspective.  When LCYC’s board sits to assess, reassess and plan for the future, our volunteer directors can call upon a variety of past and present experiences such as serving as a public defender, entrepreneur, parent, blogger, corrections officer, Children's Administration social worker, and accountant.  Our board plays an important role in the growth, development and financial health of LCYC.
