Message from the President
The Seventh Annual ILAPSC Conference was a great success. We welcomed almost 600 attendees and almost 30 exhibitors and sponsors. This was by far our largest conference ever. We hope that, if you were able to attend, you enjoyed the conference.
The ILAPSC Board of Directors met for our annual retreat on November 7-8 to discuss the successes and areas for improvement of this conference, and begin planning for the 2020 ILAPSC Conference. Based on your feedback, the Board has decided to extend the conference so that lunch times can be used for networking rather than general sessions, and break times can be extended. The 2020 ILAPSC Conference check-in will begin at 10:00am with the first session starting at 1:00pm on October 14 and run through 2:30pm on October 16 at the Bloomington-Normal Marriott Conference Center. The conference price will remain the same.
We hope you have a joyful holiday season and a happy New Year.
Janet Holmgren, President
Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts
