The Board of Directors of Eastern Illini Electric Cooperative (EIEC) has appointed Lauri Quick as the newest Eastern Illini Electric Cooperative board member. Quick will serve as director from District 9, a position that became vacant after the passing of Jay Hageman, long-time EIEC director. She has been a member of Eastern Illini for ten years and brings a wealth of experience to the position. Quick is currently employed by the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Illinois as Administrative Aide in the Office of Advancement. In her role within the Office of Advancement, Lauri counsels and advises on administrative matters, manages the operating and events budgets, and facilitates educational programs and special events for donors, alumni and the public.
Quick holds a bachelor’s degree from Eastern Illinois University and a master’s degree in Human Resources Education from the University of Illinois. She and her husband, David, make their home in Tolono, IL.
As a member of the board of directors, Quick will work with the other board members to set co-op policy, approve budgets and contractual considerations, monitor the financial and operational needs of the Cooperative, and provide guidance and oversight to cooperative staff.
“I am honored, and grateful to the EIEC board for the opportunity to be part of this exceptional organization,” said Quick. “I look forward to representing the interests of all cooperative members.”
“Lauri impressed us with her diverse skill set and perspective as well as her community involvement and enthusiasm for the position,” said Tom Schlatter, EIEC Board Chairman. “We know that our membership will see the same qualities in Lauri when they meet her.”
