HAMMOND – The Dunes National Park Association has named new officers. In addition to helping the association work toward their goals, officers work on committees that handle strategic planning, finances, marketing and membership.
The new officers are Speros A. Batistatos, president; Mike Shymanski, vice president; Donna Kuschel, secretary; and Robin Carlascio, treasurer. The Dunes National Park Association is a non-profit organization that supports the protection, preservation and promotion of Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
Batistatos will oversee the DNPA and efforts in applying for grants and private sector funding, building membership, publicizing and encouraging public support for park goals.
“We are really pleased at the dedication and hard work of the DNPA’s founding president David Megremis, and we are looking forward to working with Spero and the new officers in the future,” said Constantine Dillon, superintendent of Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
