A Message from the President

Thank you for visiting The Illinois Club Website. I am Kathy Valdés, President for my second and final year in 2018-2019. In my first year as President I had the privilege of working with an outstanding group of dedicated volunteers including Board Members, Committee Members, and Interest Group Chairs. I look forward to working with this year's group of volunteers, spending time with members I have come to know, and getting to know new members of The Illinois Club. If you have not already done so, I hope you consider joining us. In addition to our events and interest groups, we have a Newcomer's Group ready with a warm welcome for new members.

We have lived in the Champaign-Urbana area since 2012 when my husband took a job at the University. The Illinois Club is special to me because, through the events and activities of the club, I was able to meet people and find friends in a new community. Not only have I met many interesting people and enjoyed many events, I have been inspired by the bright and enthusiastic student scholars who are supported by our club scholarships.

On behalf of the board, interest group chairs, and other volunteers and members, I invite you to join us for event-filled year together. I welcome ideas, questions, and/or suggestions, please feel free to email me at president@theillinoisclub.org .
