IPDL Officers and Directors
Associations like IPDL are dependent on the efforts of volunteers, who contribute their time and cover their own expenses to ensure that the interests of our members and our industry are protected, and their voices heard. These fabricare specialists represent a complete cross section of our industry in Illinois. They are individuals from dry cleaning plants both small and large, coin laundry, laundry, and uniform rental operators, specialists in fire restoration, route sales, and shoe repair, and marketers of petroleum, perc and alternative solvents.

Please note that your officers and directors, although elected by the membership, are essentially self-selected, because they stepped forward to become active in our organization. We encourage all members, including those from allied trades, to become active in our organization and to participate in working task forces and committees. We particularly appreciate the continued involvement of many of our former presidents, and have listed them below along with the current IPDL leadership.

All these industry leaders are available to answer your questions about the Association, convey your concerns to their colleagues, and hear your comments about the state of the industry. Feel free to call them with suggestions, opinions, or to convey your words of support.
