Welcome to the Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts!
Message from the President
Welcome to the homepage of the ILAPSC. We have been undergoing some construction and hope to have everything up to date in the very near future.
Work on our 2018 conference is proceeding, and we will have much more information for you when the next Message from the President is on this page. As a teaser, we will have some very familiar and fan-favorite presenters on October 18 and 19, 2018. Of course, we will continue to have our early bird registration and activities for you on October 17, 2018.
The ILAPSC bylaws require a call for nomination going out mid-spring. Watch these pages for that call. If you have been to our conference before or are a frequent visitor to our site, you know that we encourage that the members of our Board be diverse, both geographically and professionally. If you review our Board of Directors list, you will note that diversity. We would like to encourage those of you who are interested in being working members of our Board to apply for the Board. At this time, we are lacking a Board member who is involved in a Veterans Treatment Court. We currently have only one prosecutor on the Board.
Thank you for visiting our website, and stop back by for updates.
Jeffrey B. Ford, President
