Corrao named executive director of Illinois Bar Foundation
Lisa Corrao has been selected to be Executive Director of the Illinois Bar Foundation (IBF), the charitable arm of the Illinois State Bar Association.
Corrao joined the Foundation in March, 2008, as Associate Executive Director. Her previous experience includes serving as the Director of Development for the Chicago Sinfonietta and Vice President of Advancement for the Illinois Saint Andrew Society in North Riverside. She was Director of Development and Communications of the Glenwood School for Boys and Girls from 1996 to 2000.
“Lisa’s extensive experience fits well with the goals and programs of the Foundation,” said Vincent Cornelius of Wheaton, IBF president. “We are looking forward to expanding the IBF’s ability to channel funding to crucial legal and social services that are increasingly needed by Illinois citizens.”
Established in 1951, the Illinois Bar Foundation’s mission is to ensure meaningful access to the justice system, especially for those with limited means, and to assist lawyers who can no longer support themselves due to incapacity.
A native of Park Forest, IL, Corrao received her B.A. degree in Broadcast Communications from Columbia College, Chicago, in 1987. She resides with her husband, Giorgio, and their twins Alex and Mandi in Mokena.
