2018 Executive Trustee Election

Board Room

Sue Stanish

Present Position

Director of Finance for the Naperville Park District

Length of Service

I have been with the Park District for 7 years and previously served as the Director of Finance with the Village of Willowbrook for 13 years and the Accounting Manager for the City of Naperville for five years.


As Director of Finance I am responsible for the District’s financial operations which include: investments, accounts payable, payroll, budgeting, forecasting, debt management, policy development and financial analysis.

Other Information

Executive Trustee on the IMRF Board for the past 5 years; Degree in accounting from DePaul University; Certified Public Accountant, Past President of the Illinois Governmental Finance Officers Association (IGFOA), Past Chairman of the IGFOA Career Development Committee, Past Board Member of the Illinois Metropolitan Investment Fund and member of PDRMA’s Finance Committee.

It has been an honor serving on the IMRF Board for the last 5 years and the experience I have gained has been invaluable. This in conjunction with the perspectives I have gained from working in the Municipal and Park District arenas will continue to be a positive addition to the IMRF Board if I am re-elected. The issues facing Illinois Public Pension Funds continue to be an ongoing challenge that needs to be carefully managed. If I am fortunate enough to serve another term on the IMRF Board, I will continue to work hard to ensure that the Fund remains fiscally sound and viable for members and employers.
