Earlier this week, the members of the Will County Women’s Bar Association elected Charlene Recio as President of its 2020 Executive Board. She is joined on the board by Meghan Troc, Vice President, Britt Florin, Treasurer, and Shenonda Tisdale, Secretary. The newly elected officers were installed earlier this week at the January general meeting.
Recio is an Assistant State’s Attorney with the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office and is currently assigned to the Narcotics Unit of the felony division. Recio joined the Will County Women’s Bar Association in 2013 and has taken on many different roles within the organization, having served as the Secretary, Treasurer, and Vice-President of the executive board in years past. In addition to her leadership roles on the Will County Women’s Bar Association, she also serves as the Vice President of the Illinois Prosecutors Bar Association and is an active member in the Will County Bar Association. Recio has bachelor of arts degree from Illinois Wesleyan University and is a graduate of Depaul University College of Law.
“I’m honored to have been elected president of the Will County Women’s Bar Association. It has been so inspiring to be a part of the bar association’s ongoing commitment to the local community and non-profit organizations. I hope to keep that momentum going by continuing to provide both social and philanthropic programming that will further that mission,” commented Charlene Recio.
Within the last few months alone, the Will County Women’s Bar Association has raised just over $1,000 for the American Cancer Society and the Toys For Tots Foundation through its fundraising efforts.
