LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring Dr. Peter C. Campanelli upon the occa-
sion of his retirement after 27 years of distinguished service to the
Institute for Community Living

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body seeks to acknowledge those individuals
whose professional lives and civic endeavors serve to enhance the stat-
ure of the State of New York; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to honor Dr.
Peter C. Campanelli upon the occasion of his retirement after 27 years
of distinguished service to the Institute for Community Living on
Wednesday, May 29, 2013; and
WHEREAS, Dr. Campanelli will be completing his 27-year tenure as the
President and Chief Executive Officer at the not-for-profit agency he
founded in 1986; Institute for Community Living (ICL) is now one of the
largest behavioral health agencies in the country and is renowned for
its integrated health approaches and programs helping individuals and
families with psychiatric, intellectual and/or developmental disabili-
ties; and
WHEREAS, Dr. Campanelli will continue to serve in his current capacity
until June 2013 while the Board conducts a nationwide search; his excep-
tional dedication and visionary leadership have led ICL to become one of
the largest, most well-respected, not-for-profit providers of communi-
ty-based behavioral healthcare in New York City, and in the country; and
WHEREAS, From its operational roots housed in a refurbished garage in
Brooklyn to an agency that today provides a significant amount in
services annually to a population that is often relegated to benign
indifference, ICL continues to help those who are mentally ill,
substance abuse involved and homeless; at its core, the mission has
always been to improve the quality of life of the people served; and
WHEREAS, Initially accomplished through housing, the agency has since
expanded to provide evidenced-based treatment and interventions through
assertive community teams, clinics, primary care and rehabilitation
programs; due to Dr. Campanelli's innovative leadership, disparities in
access to behavioral health services have been reduced while service
outcomes and effectiveness have been improved; and
WHEREAS, Throughout the course of his career, Dr. Campanelli has tire-
lessly and broadly advocated on local, state and national levels to
ensure the availability and accessibility of behavioral health services,
for persons residing in underserved and, often, impoverished communi-
ties; his goal has been to ensure that they can readily access services
as good as those available to more prosperous individuals through lead-
ing universities and medical centers; and
WHEREAS, For the past 27 years, Dr. Peter Campanelli rendered faith-
ful, conscientious and valuable service to the Institute for Community
Living; and
WHEREAS, In his capacity as President and CEO, Dr. Peter Campanelli
served with loyalty, honor and distinction; and
WHEREAS, In his official acts, Dr. Peter Campanelli was governed by a
keen sense of duty and always showed a unique grasp of human problems;
and
WHEREAS, During his tenure with the Institute for Community Living,
Dr. Peter Campanelli earned the admiration, esteem and affection of his
colleagues; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Dr. Peter C. Campanelli upon the occasion of his retirement after
27 years of distinguished service; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Dr. Peter C. Campanelli.
