unanimously elected to serve on the Board of Directors of the
Township Officials of Illinois (TOI) during the Association's 111th

The Township Officials of Illinois serves as the largest statewide
organization of its kind and annually conducts a series of training
programs and educational conferences, with November's Annual
Educational Conference being the largest. TOI serves as an
informational clearinghouse for almost 11,000 association members in
1400 townships across all regions of the state, as well as members
of the Illinois General Assembly, Members of Congress, and federal
and state agencies.
This year's conference, with a theme of "Navigating Through Township
Government," brought together hundreds of township officials from
across the state to attend sessions covering current issues faced by
local governments including legislation, financial procedures, and
how to best serve their communities.
