Schaumburg Park District will have a vacancy on its Board of Park Commissioners in April following the retirement of longtime commissioner, Mike Daniels.
The Board of Park Commissioners will officially accept the resignation of Daniels at the next board meeting on Thursday, April 8, and begin the process of filling his seat. Community members who wish to be considered for the seat should email their resumes to Leanne Osmanski at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 16. Interviews will be arranged with selected candidates at a special meeting held for the purpose of filling the open seat. Sitting board members will appoint a new commissioner at the May 13 board meeting to serve out the remaining two years left of Daniels’ term.
Commissioners help guide District operations through setting policy, approving the annual budget and serving on sub-committees. Candidates must reside within District boundaries.
“The challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic have caused a dramatic shift in District operations and park commissioners have been heavily involved in seeing us through this difficult time,” said Tony LaFrenere, executive director. “We are grateful for their continued hard work and dedication and look forward to working with the selected commissioner.”
