We would like to congratulate City Year New York’s Founding Board Co-Chair and 2009 Ripples of Hope Dinner honoree, Jill Iscol, on her appointment to the New York State Commission on National and Community Service by Governor Paterson. Led by Susan Stern, Commission Chair, and First Lady Michelle Paige Paterson, Honorary Chair, the body is responsible for promoting and implementing volunteer service programs across the state. This group will also play a key role in supporting New York’s efforts to host the 2010 National Conference on Volunteering and Service. Jill is an incredible City Year supporter and we are delighted that she is playing such an important role in the National Service Movement.
