Congratulations to Jen Lydigsen on her new job in St. Charles. Unfortunately for us, that means Jen will no longer have time to serve on the NIMCon board. We are sad to see you go, and wish you the best in your new position! Serving as Interim Secretary to finish out Jen’s term will be Margaret Delligatti from Northwood Jr. High in Highland Park. We welcome Margaret into the position and appreciate her willingness to jump in and serve the organization.
