Senior Task Force Seeks Board of Directors for New Nonprofit

As part of the Naperville Senior Task Force’s (STF) efforts to assist seniors with transportation needs, a new nonprofit called “Naperville Seniors In Action” is being established to oversee creation, funding and daily operations of a volunteer driver program. This program would connect seniors who need rides to and from their medical appointments with a volunteer driver to take them to the appointments, wait with them and then drive them back home.

Five individuals with experience in fundraising, nonprofits, grant writing, banking, law, accounting or marketing are desired to sit on the board of directors of this new nonprofit, which will be overseen by Senior Task Force co-chair Karen Courney and STF Transportation Subcommittee Chair Jane French.

An application form is available at The completed application and a resume must be submitted to Emy Trotz in the Mayor’s Office by no later than Friday, April 1, 2016. Interviews will be conducted after that time. Please email Karen Courney at if you have questions or need more information.
