Terri Channer Appointed as New Barrington Area Council on Aging Executive Director

The Barrington Area Council on Aging has a new Executive Director. BACOA’s Board of Directors announced they’ve appointed Terri Channer to lead their mission, serving Barrington area seniors and their caregivers through activities, education and support.

Channer previously served WINGS, a non-profit that supports people subjected to domestic violence as their Senior Director of Development for over 12-years. She recently worked as the Interim Executive Director of CASA McHenry County before joining BACOA.

Richard Resseguie, Sr. Vice President of Northern Trust and BACOA Board President says Terri rose to the top of their list of candidates to fill the position. “Our board recently completed a five-year strategic plan and needed someone with a breadth of nonprofit experience, vision and leadership skills. Terri brings all those and more to the table.”

The organization’s long-term strategic plan calls for increased services and a larger geographic footprint to meet the increasing demand for older adult services throughout the northwest suburbs.

Channer is no stranger to a growing organization as she worked on the opening of WINGS’ newest emergency shelter, overseeing fundraising, planning and community relations initiatives. Terri says she’s ready to hit the ground running. “I am very excited to be a part of BACOA’s future and thrilled to be working with a proven organization with so much potential to lead the way in senior services.”

Last year BACOA helped nearly 1,400 individuals with information on housing options, in-home care services, enrollment in Medicare and Medicaid and counseling on insurance benefits. The group also provided support and education for seniors and their caregivers. BACOA offers numerous activities and programs for active seniors, a day respite program for older adults, and a Memory Café. It also provided 4,000 meals through its Meals-with-Wheels program this past year.


Incorporated in 1984, the Barrington Area Council on Aging is a 501.c.3 charitable organization that exists to provide activities, education and support to adults and caregivers enabling vibrant, healthy aging. In addition to offering information about home care, housing and medical claims assistance, BACOA supports Meals-with-Wheels, activity programs and groups for those affected by Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and young-onset dementia. The organization’s offices are located at 6000 Garlands Lane, Suite 100, Barrington, IL 60010.
