The theme of the 2018 Annual Town Meeting is Making a Difference - Right Now. Clerk Jerome Hoynes invites all New Trier Township residents and community members to attend the meeting. You'll learn about positive programs and services that are improving the quality of life here in the communities we serve.

Annual Town Meetings are one of the oldest traditions of Township government in which all Townships in Illinois meet on a Tuesday in early April to review the official business of Township government. It is also unique in that registered voters rather than the elected officials vote on agenda items.

Please join us for an Open House and the 169th Annual Town Meeting to visit with elected officials and staff, learn about social services provided by featured agencies that will offer materials and discussions at individual displays, enjoy light refreshments, and stay for the Annual Town Meeting presentation. We are holding the meeting at the North Shore Senior Center, a wonderful facility that will add to the enjoyment of the evening.

This years' keynote address will be delivered by Lonnie Stonitsch, Executive Director of the Family Action Network.

Attendees will also hear a presentation and updates on social services and grant programs offered by the Township to residents. Assessor Jan Churchwell will provide a brief commentary on property taxation.


Announcement of the New Trier Township award recipients is still pending; winners will be honored at the meeting. The Township is grateful for the service and dedication of our many volunteers and supporters who make the work of the Township possible. The following will be awarded at the meeting.

  • Supervisor's Superior Service Award
  • George E. Noyes Community Spirit Award
  • Peer Jury Scholarship Award
  • Friend of the Township Awards
