Lynn Saputo is the membership marketing coordinator for the Illinois Sheriffs Association as of July 1. Prior to that, she spent 12 years with Springfield Park District, first as the general manager for Erins Pavilion and then as the director of recreation and marketing.
I was looking to scale back, retire a little if you will, but that lasted all of a couple of weeks, she said of her decision to step down from her position with the Park District. Saputo said when she learned about an opening at the Illinois Sheriffs Association, she thought it would be a great fit.
Working for the Park District was fun, but its a very broad platform. I wanted to narrow my focus, she said. This was a great segue to do what I love the most, which is member services, marketing and customer service.
