Sid Collins of the YMCA of Easley, Pickens & Powdersville Honored as 2018 Director of the Year

As part of the Greater Easley Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner on March 14, the chamber honored Sid Collins with the YMCA of Easley, Pickens & Powdersville as the 2018 Director of the Year.

Each year, by secret ballot, the Greater Easley Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors selects a Director of the Year.  This honor recognizes a Board member who has gone above and beyond the call of duty...someone who leads by example…someone who has kept others on course and motivated.

In 2018, the Easley Chamber continued to implement its strategic plan, realizing a need to dedicate more deliberate discussion about strategic direction to ensure efforts stayed on course and focused on identified goals.   With a “big picture” leadership style, Mr. Collins was the perfect board member to help meet that need.   Even with unexpected challenges, his leadership and innovative ideas guided the chamber Board of Directors forward on a sound path.  Sid leads by example, with great passion and commitment.  He is recognized by his fellow board members as a bridge builder, problem solver and true servant leader.
