Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating YMCA in the United States through membership at your “home” YMCA (your home Y is the local association that enrolled you as a member and collects your membership dues). Your home YMCA should be the one that you are currently using most frequently.
The Williams YMCA of Avery County is an Independent Y, free from the added support of an Association. A large portion of our membership base is made up of seasonal residents. For this reason, our continued participation in the Y-USA Nationwide Program is contingent upon the following:
- Nationwide members understand that there is no reimbursement to us from their home YMCA when they visit our facility. We are welcoming you as a guest – completely free of charge.
- Seasonal residents who will be staying in the area for longer than one month will join our facility as an active member, or pay guest fees for visits made after their first month in our area.
Our success as an organization is entirely dependent upon a happy partnership between you as members, and the Directors and employees that you encounter every day. For that reason, we encourage you to come to us with any questions or concerns that you may have.
