Yesterday, during our summer staff gathering in Rockford, we received a wonderful surprise! During our picnic, Matthew Flores, Assistant City Attorney for the City of Rockford, presented Susan Yates, RSI’s Executive Director, with a Proclamation signed by the City of Rockford Mayor Thomas McNamara which declared July 11, 2018 as Resolution Systems Institute Day!
In 2013, RSI received a grant from the Illinois Attorney General to incubate foreclosure mediation in Illinois. In November 2014, RSI began the 17th Judicial Circuit Court Foreclosure Mediation program. By the end of 2017, RSI assisted 694 homeowners with 202 home retentions. RSI’s grant will be ending August 31, 2018, at which time the 17th Circuit Foreclosure Mediation program will be taken over by the court.
RSI is pleased to have had the opportunity to work with the 17th Judicial Circuit and thanks Mayor McNamara for the recognition.
Many thanks to Mayor McNamara and to Matt Flores!! We have never had a “day” before!
Way to go 17th; way to go RSI–a long relationship with the Circuit, including the 1st in the State Mandatory Arbitration program in smaller cases and 1st the the State Major Civil Mediation Program, under Chief Judge Agnew, later the long time Chair of RSI.
Wow ! What a wonderful and well-deserved tribute.
