Chairman Dr. David R. Decker has announced the appointment of Marcia Bailey to the Urbana University Board of Trustees.
Bailey is director of the Champaign Economic Partnership, a collaborative regional economic development agency of Champaign County and the city of Urbana. She is board president of the Monument Square District, which supports the city’s central business district, and she serves on other local and regional boards. An alumna of Urbana University, she earned her B.S. in Social Sciences from Urbana in 1995. She is a Triad graduate, mother of three adult sons and married to Ned Bailey.
“I am proud of Urbana/Champaign County and proud to call it home,” she said. “I am both elated and honored to serve my alma mater as a member of the board of trustees. The university is a tremendous resource for our region and is on a path for growth and long-term sustainability. It’s an exciting time to become more deeply involved with the university and I am looking forward to the opportunities ahead.”
“I am very pleased that Marcia has joined the board,” Decker said. “Along with her perspective as a graduate, she also brings a wealth of knowledge and experience of the local and regional business and industry to the board and will deepen and extend the productive relationship between Urbana University and the region it serves.”
