Benita Twillie – Illinois Organizers Union – Professional Support Staff, Secretary
After a successful career as a medical practice management consultant specializing in “organizing” physicians for managed health care contracts, I joined the Illinois Federation of Teachers in 2005. Assigned to the administrative offices in Westmont, I currently work as support staff for IFT’s professional development team. Elected as secretary of the IOU-SS, I am in my second term as a member of the unit’s executive board. In addition, I serve on IFT’s Insurance Committee and as a member of the IOU-SS negotiating team.
