Judge Chmiel Granted Director Emeritus Status

Posted by:

At the November 13, 2017 Annual Membership Meeting of the Association, the Board of Directors voted unanimously to grant the request for Director Emeritus Status from long-time Association Director Judge Michael Chmiel of the McHenry County Circuit Court. Such status is an option under the By-Laws of the Association and creates a vacancy on the Board of Directors for “young blood” as suggested by Judge Chmiel. The Association thanks the Judge for his long years work and looks forward to continuing to work with Judge Chmiel in his new role on the Board. Any Association member who is interested in filing the vacancy created by the Emeritus status of Judge Chmiel and serving on the Board of Directors please contact President John Nelson.
