Message from the President
Work on our 2018 conference is proceeding, and we will have much more information for you when the next Message from the President is posted. 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 for updates.
Jeffrey B. Ford, President
Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts
Illinois Problem Solving Court Standards & Certification Process
The Illinois Problem-Solving Court Standards and Certification and Application process were approved by the Supreme Court in November, 2015. All Problem-Solving Courts (adult courts as labeled in the Standards) have to be certified by the Supreme Court. Any new Problem-Solving Court must be certified prior to starting.
