Jeanne Davik is a long-time member of the Elmhurst League, serving in various capacities on the Board, including president, webmaster, and newsletter editor. She also served on the Illinois League Board for four years as VP-Communications, focusing primarily on the redesign and enhancement of the LWVIL website.
While living in Elmhurst, she served on the boards of the Elmhurst Symphony, the ESO Endowment Trust, and the Elmhurst: College & Community group. In Oak Brook, where she currently resides, she served on the Oak Brook Community Caucus and on the board of the Oak Brook Civic Association.
After college at Valparaiso (BA) and Northwestern (MA), she taught high school English for seven years. Most of her work-life, however, was spent in professional sales with a legal publisher, CCH.

LWV Elmhurst Members in Action!
Despite predictions of 8 - 10 inches of snow on February 1, eight Elmhurst Leaguers braved what was potentially the worst storm of the season to attend the LWVIL Issues Briefing
in the Chicago Loop. The Briefing featured topics which will feature prominently in the current legislative session, including fracking, redistricting, a graduated rate income tax, and charter schools. Supporting materials from the event may be viewed by clicking here.
LWV Elmhurst Board Members Sue Williams, Sue Whitworth and Jan Dorner
listen intently at the presentations.
LWV Elmhurst Members Sue Williams, Laura Kratz and Marilyn Thompson
discuss the information presented at the Issues Briefing.
