[March 31, 2007] The corporate board of the Central Illinois Economic Development Corp., a Community Action agency, had its annual meeting and dinner on Thursday at the Maple Club in Lincoln.

CIEDC is a private, not-for-profit organization whose mission is "to work towards the reduction and eventual elimination of the causes and effects of poverty." CIEDC was established in 1966 and provides a variety of programs to the low-income and elderly of its service area, including Logan, Mason, Piatt, DeWitt, Menard and Fulton counties.

2007 corporate board officers were announced at the meeting prior to the annual dinner. Steve Lobb of DeWitt County will continue to serve at board president. Phib Bell-Hedden of Mason County will continue to serve as vice president. Mike Booher of Logan County will be the treasurer, and Gloria Luster of Logan County will be the board secretary.

Two board members serving more than 20 years resigned in 2006. Jim Griffin of Mason County was presented with a plaque commemorating his longtime commitment to the agency. Paul Gleason of Logan County also resigned from the board in 2006 but was unable to attend the event. Both Griffin and Gleason served as board president during their tenure.

Donors were recognized at the dinner, and supporters watched a performance by the Lincoln Community High School speech team.

The CIEDC corporate board is a tripartite board of 18-21 members drawn from its service area. Membership on the board is evenly divided between three areas of representation: public, client and private sectors.
