Julie Davis of the Boys and Girls Club of Door County has been recognized as “Executive Director of the Year” for the Midwest Region by the Boys and Girls Club of America. Davis accepted the award earlier this month at the Boys and Girls Clubs of America Midwest Regional Conference in Schaumburg, Illinois. Inge Bacon, Chairman of the Board of Directors for the local Boys and Girls Club, said Davis embodies all of the best qualities of a leader. Bacon says the organization has grown to 400 members in kindergarten to high school under her leadership. Davis will now be in the running for the “National Director of the Year” which will be announced at the Boys and Girls Clubs annual conference in New Orleans in May. Davis joined the Boys and Girls Club of Door County in 2012 as Director of Operations. She was promoted to Executive Director in 2013. The club has since won two consecutive national awards for “Best Overall Program” in the nation for small clubs and has purchased its first facility in downtown Sturgeon Bay.
The Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Club of Door County was honored for attaining the “Silver” level of the League of Eagles at the Midwest Regional Conference of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America on October 14th. The six key elements focus on whether or not boards engage, ask, give, lead, evaluate and serve. The Door County contingent was recognized for achieving 90% of the performance indicators. In 2014, fewer than 10% of the Boys and Girls Club Boards of Directors met the “Eagle” milestone.
