Village of Wilmette Appoints Housing Our Own Board of Directors
In August, the Wilmette Village Board appointed nine members to the Housing Our Own-Wilmette Board of Directors. Board members are volunteers from the Wilmette community and do not receive compensation for their service. At the request of Village President Bob Bielinski, Board member Joan Criswell-Merrilees has agreed to serve as Chair of the Board. The Board will be meeting quarterly to formulate a fundraising and marketing strategy and to review the guidelines and criteria for housing assistance.
