Explanation:
We're talking about the Vice-President of the organisation's BOARD, that's why I've used "Vice President". Besides, that's what the YMCA itself uses; see their webpage at: http://www.ymca.int/Publications/youth_newsletter/4_2000glob...

It says:
"Bente Pedersen, Vice-President, YMCA/YWCA of Denmark"

Can't be more clear than that...
