HUTCHINSON, Kan. – Boys & Girls Clubs of Hutchinson announced today that Lindsey Fields is serving as the new director of operations, effective October 26. Fields has 5 years of experience in the Boys & Girls Club movement and 10 years of experience working in the nonprofit sector. She replaces Lance Patterson in the position, who was promoted to chief executive officer after 18 years with the organization.

“We are excited to welcome Lindsey back to the Club as our new director of operations,” said Lance Patterson, chief executive officer. “She will work to ensure a positive Club experience for our families, Vision Leaders and donors. We will work together to carry out our mission to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Fields previously served as the Club’s resource development coordinator for five years, beginning in 2016.

The Club is a place for children and teens to make connections to their peers, Club, school, and community that will help them become thriving adults.”

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hutchinson is composed of two sites that together serve more than 1,000 area youth each year. As director of operations, Fields will oversee the organization’s administrative and operational systems and procedures to support the achievement of the Club’s goals.
