Chicago Volunteer Legal Services’ Board of Directors appointed 15 new members to its Advisory Board last week. All but three new members have served on CVLS’ governing board in the past, eight as president. Christopher N. Skey, a member of the law firm Clark Hill and a former CVLS governing board president, will serve as the Advisory Board’s Chair.

Advisory Board members serve as ambassadors of CVLS to the legal community by working with the Board of Directors and CVLS management to build, maintain, and strengthen relationships with law firms, legal entities, the judiciary and other related groups and organizations in the legal community. Board members also ensure the continuity and success of CVLS by providing strategic guidance, advice and support to the organization, its Board of Directors, and management.

Five current Advisory Board members have agreed to continue their board service to CVLS.
