The DeKalb County Community Foundation is pleased to announce new leadership for its officers of the Board of Directors. During the January 2023 annual meeting, the Foundation elected Christine Johnson (Shabbona) as president and Jim Stoddard (Sycamore) as vice president.
The additional existing Board officers continue in their roles, including David Castle (DeKalb) serving as the treasurer and Dan Templin as secretary while fulfilling his other role as executive director of the Community Foundation.
“The entire Board and staff of the Community Foundation are grateful to Joe Mitchell for his humble service, wisdom, and inspirational leadership during his tenure as Board president,” said Foundation Executive Director Dan Templin. “We are honored to continue our tradition of strong and steady Board stewardship through Christine Johnson’s leadership.”
The Board of Directors are volunteer representatives throughout the county who govern the Community Foundation as thoughtful contributors and connectors to the mission of the Foundation. Board members serve three-year terms and may serve a maximum of nine years. The Board sets policy, formulates strategic priorities, inspires donor interest in partnering with the Foundation, and determines the use of grantmaking and other Foundation resources.
