Chapter Announces New Board Officers
The ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter is pleased to announce the election of Ellyn C. Phillips as Board Chair, Dan Quinn as Vice Chair, and Julie Karnavas as Treasurer. Sandy Piersol will continue in her current role as Secretary.
Ellyn, Dan, and Julie replace the departure of former Board Chair Christina Martin, Vice Chair Dale Shimer, and Treasurer Larry Mink. The Chapter is most appreciative for the years of service and dedication given by these individuals. As board leaders, they helped to usher in an era of strategic growth and capacity-building, as well as establish a more streamlined board structure to support programs and initiatives that improve quality of life for all those served by the Chapter.
New Board Chair Ellyn C. Phillips has been a devoted friend to the ALS community for more than three decades. Together with her dedicated parents, Ellyn led the Chapter to earn designation as the principal charity of the Philadelphia Phillies—an enduring relationship since 1984 that has markedly increased awareness of ALS and, so far, has cumulatively raised more than $18 million to fight the disease.
“As new board officers we are assuming our roles at a time when the health of the Chapter has never been stronger. We expect the Chapter to end the fiscal year with exceptionally strong results that will allow us to continue to grow in our mission, and we look forward to building on the committed work accomplished by our departing officers,” says Ellyn.
