Chris Copeland is the Operations Manager at Cochranes of Champaign, Inc. and is serving a second term on the board of directors at Champaign Center Partnership, representing the Campustown district. A native of Chicagoland, Chris graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Urban and Regional Planning in 1990. Chris appreciates that C-U has many “big city” attractions (i.e. shopping, bars, athletics) in a smaller, less-congested town which has kept him in the area. In his spare time, Chris enjoys traveling, especially to annual festivals in Austria and Germany.
