Duro to head Treasure Valley Y

David Duro, a 33-year veteran of the Y, will replace longtime executive Jim Everett as president and CEO of the Treasure Valley YMCA. Duro will become the CEO Nov. 16.

Everett, 63, is retiring after 28 years as CEO.

Duro, 53, has worked for the YMCA since 1982, in Boise and Clallam County, Wash. He’s been with the Treasure Valley Y since 1995 when he became the organization’s vice president and chief operating officer. In 2012, Duro became one of four senior resource directors for the YMCA of the USA, a role in which he provided oversight for 143 YMCAs in 19 states.

“This Y has a rich history and strong tradition of meeting critical social issues in our community,” Duro said in a statement, “and I am honored to be selected to build upon the great work that has been achieved under the leadership of Jim Everett, an icon in our community.”

The Y board conducted a search that included both local and national candidates before selecting Duro.

The organization will host the Jim Everett Retirement Celebration and Heritage Dinner on Nov. 14 at the Boise Centre. Tickets are $75, $150 for a couple. RSVP online by Nov. 4.
