The Illinois Municipal League announced its newest elected officers and board members during its 105th annual conference held Sept. 20-22 in Chicago.
Among those taking on roles within the organization include River Forest Village President Cathy Adduci, who will serve as a vice president on IML’s board of directors. Adduci is one of 36 vice presidents elected to serve one-year terms.
“Through my interaction with mayors from across the state, I will be able to assist in solving some of the very real issues our community and state face,” Adduci said. “I am excited to exchange ideas and share solutions as we advocate for local government at the state and federal level.”
Adduci, who was elected to a second term as River Forest village president in April 2017, previously served as a village trustee from 2009 to 2013. She also served as River Forest’s village clerk from 2007 to 2009.
Adduci is a retired vice president and senior executive for Unisys Corporation, an international technology firm, where she worked for 32 years.
On the final day of the conference, IML members unanimously elected Macomb Mayor Michael J. Inman to serve a one-year term as president. Also elected during the conference were North Chicago Mayor Leon Rockingham Jr. as first vice president and Vandalia Mayor Ricky J. Gottman as second vice president.
The IML is a statewide organization representing local communities throughout Illinois.
The 2018 IML conference, held at the Hilton Chicago, was attended by more than 2,000 local elected and appointed officials.
