AID President O’Shea Retires after 20 Years of Service

Since beginning her tenure as AID president/CEO in 1998, Lynn O’Shea has tirelessly advocated for the positive growth of the Association for Individual Development (AID).

O’Shea actively worked with legislators by advocating for best industry practices and improved funding. Her proactive nature influenced public opinion and support for individuals with diverse disabilities and mental health needs.

She expanded AID programs and services to multiple counties throughout Northern Illinois. More than 5,500 individuals now receive services thanks to this expansion. To serve new clients,
O’Shea prudently managed resources — most recently exemplified by the near-completion of a $2.5 million capital campaign. This campaign eliminates mortgages and reroutes funds to programs and services.

O’Shea is succeeded by Lore Baker who assumed the role of AID president/CEO on Jan. 1.
