A successful and well-functioning nonprofit organization requires care and feeding from so many community members. Our Support Seekers and Mentor Angels, our volunteers, and our staff all add value and substance to Imerman Angels.
Our Board of Directors are often the invisible heroes helping advance our mission and supporting all aspects of our community in the background. These incredible leaders share personal connections to Imerman Angels and the cancer community as a whole.
This past December, Imerman Angels made some critical announcements and changes to our Board of Directors. We are thrilled to welcome 15 new Board members representing the depth and breadth of Chicago’s business, hospitality, medical and civic communities.
These new additions will help support the mission and vision of Imerman Angels by lending their time and talents to furthering our work in the cancer space. At this same meeting, Imerman Angels Co-Founder and Board Chair John May announced that in December of 2021 he will be stepping down as Chair of the Board and Dr. Caralyn Nowinski Collens will be taking over.
We are excited to start 2021 with the strength of the Board of Directors propelling us forward. These amazing individuals will bring unique insights, critical support and invaluable connections to help us help more people this year and beyond.
