Chapman named Executive Director of ITNLanier

By AccessWDUN Staff

Dana Chapman, who has served for the past six years as Executive Director for The Guest House, has been named the new Executive Director for ITNLanier.

ITNLanier provides transportation services for Hall County Seniors and the visually impaired who can no longer drive themselves. The ITNLanier mission is to enable members to live on their own longer than they might otherwise be able to do so.

“ITNLanier has had continued growth over the first two years of operation. We have delivered 3,500 total rides for our members with 2,200 rides occurring in our second year," said Jerry Butler, Chairman of the ITNLanier Board of Directors. "Thanks to strong community support, we have grown to the point that we need to add a full time Executive Director for our operation. We are pleased to have someone with Dana’s passion for serving the needs of seniors leading the continued growth of ITNLanier."

MJ Locklear, Chairman of The Guest House Board of Directors said a search is underway for a new Executive Director for their facility. 

“Dana has had a huge impact on The Guest House during her tenure as Executive Director. The scope of activities offered to our guests and the financial stability of the organization is in large part due to Dana’s efforts. We are going to miss her," Locklear said. 

Butler said as the need for the ITNLanier services grows, the organization is looking for volunteers. A volunteer information session has been scheduled for Wednesday, May 9 at 10 a.m. at the ITNLanier office at 999 Chestnut Street in Gainesville.
