Issaquah Community Services is pleased to announce that Carol Schneider has been elected as our new board president. Carol will take the reins from Lori Birrell, who has led ICS with tremendous energy, compassion and dedication for more than 10 years. We are very grateful for Lori’s leadership and for the many ways she has improved this organization especially through the turbulent last few years.

Carol has volunteered with ICS since 2021 and she has served on our board since 2022. Shortly before joining us, she retired from the position of Director of Student Academic Services at Seattle University after a lengthy career in administration and teaching. As board president, she will bring her expertise and passion to guide ICS towards continued success. We look forward to working with her in this new role and are excited about the future of ICS under her leadership.
