New Trier Citizens League Seeking Volunteers

The New Trier Citizens League is a non-partisan community organization made up of volunteers who function as a caucus to slate candidates to serve as Township officials. Secondarily, the Citizens League functions as a watchdog group to provide oversight on behalf of residents to observe the work of New Trier Township. The relationship between the Citizens League and the Township is a partnership wherein members of the Citizens League educate themselves on the business of the Township to assure the Township stays focused on its core mission.
The Citizens League is currently seeking about 15 new members. The commitment is not great as there are only five meetings per year, however League members report the experience is quite rewarding. The group meets three times each year; the next scheduled meeting is set for September 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the New Trier Township Board Room. Meetings typically last less than one hour. In addition to these three meetings, each member of the group attends a public meeting of the Township Board of Trustees and its advisory committees. Members then report back to the Citizens League. Finally, the group attends the Township Annual Town Meeting in April of each year. In addition to seeking out candidates to tap into their expertise for the benefit of residents and overseeing the work of the Township, the Citizens League also serves as a resource to the Township for issues that arise on an as needed basis.

The group consists of citizens who are registered voters and reside in the Township. There are members who come from all the villages that make up the Township. If you are interested in serving on the New Trier Citizens League, please contact League Vice President Peter Tyor at or 847.446.2217.
