Membership Welcome! When you join the YMCA, you become part of the world-wide fellowship of members, all interested in the development of Spirit, Mind and Body. The YMCA of Columbus is an association of members as our name implies, and therefore, the responsibility for operation and maintenance of programs and our facilities is yours….the Member. The YMCA is owned and operated by the membership and governed by their elected Board of Directors. Remember, it is your YMCA. Help keep it in good condition and help the staff with your suggestions and comments. Join today! Currently a member but have moved or changed your contact information?
