Carolyn Grawi appointed interim president & CEO of Ann Arbor CIL

The Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living (CIL) on Friday named Carolyn Grawi as its new interim president and chief executive officer.

Grawi has been serving the CIL as vice president and chief program officer (CPO). He has been appointed to the higher position by the organization's board of directors. She will replace Jim Magyar, who recently stepped down as the president and CEO, after serving the organization for nearly 32 years.

Speaking about Grawi's new role, CIL board member Dave Reid said, "I've known Carolyn Grawi for 15 years and know her to be a passionate leader, with seemingly endless energy and drive and that cares deeply about the center's mission."

Grawi has been with the CIL for around a decade. She had been the director of advocacy & education at the organization up until being promoted to the position of vice president earlier this year.

She is known for her active role in the More Buses campaign that paved way for the passage of a new tax to increase transit services in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti Township earlier this year.

Founded in 1976, the Ann Arbor CIL is a nonprofit organization that works to support individuals with disabilities by providing them with access to individualized counseling, advocacy efforts, arts programming, skill-building classes, and recreation.
