Seguin & UCP Announce Planned MergerSeguin on 02/15/2013
February 15, 2013
Dear Friend of Seguin,
We are pleased to share with our Seguin Services supporters some very good news about the long-term growth and viability of our organization: Seguin Services’ Board of Directors has signed a letter of intent to merge with United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Greater Chicago effective July 1, 2013.
John Voit, Seguin’s President and CEO since 1998, will become president of the new organization. Paul Dulle, PhD, President and CEO of UCP of Greater Chicago since 1993, will provide ongoing consulting to the new organization and will serve as chairman of a new foundation under consideration by both organizations.
Recognizing inherent synergies between our organizations, Seguin and UCP have been working together for three years on a number of programs including a life-skills training program for individuals served from both agencies, consolidations of employment programs and construction of a new residential group home in Lombard.
With this planned merger, UCP-Seguin of Greater Chicago will share competencies, expertise and resources while achieving greater operational efficiencies and reduced costs. Most importantly, the new organization will be well-positioned to provide more and better programs and services to help people with disabilities reach their full potential and play a valued, vital role in community life.
Please note that this planned merger will not affect the programs and services Seguin and UCP are currently providing. Seguin and UCP are both strong organizations, and we plan to retain all staff under the new arrangement.
We have much work to do to ensure a smooth transition before the merger becomes final, and we will keep you abreast of our progress as we move forward.
John Voit--President & CEO
Joseph O. Pedersen--Board President
