Joint Conference with

in Springfield, IL

April 8-11, 2019

The Illinois Association of County Veterans Assistance Commissions will hold their Spring (Legislative) Meeting on April 9th, 2019 in conjunction with the Spring Conference of the Illinois Association of County Officials at the Wyndham City Centre Hotel (formerly the Downtown Hilton Hotel), 700 East Adams, Springfield, IL.  The meeting will begin at 9:00 a.m. on April 9th  and we are anticipating a fairly full day of speakers and dialogues with officials and legislators, as well as, our business meeting .   This is part of our continuing effort to bring educational opportunities to all the meetings.  We will break for lunch at approximately noon and reconvene at 1:30. 

 

The Board of Directors’ Meeting will be held April 8th at 5:00 p.m. at the Wyndham City Centre. 

 

Accommodations are available at the Wyndham City Centre, on-line (https://bit.ly/2QpNPPe  or https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/groups/hr/il-assn-of-county-officials1 ) or at (217) 789-1530 for $95.00 per night plus taxes.  You must indicate that you are with IACO when making your reservations.    Reservations are open at this time.  Reservation cut-off date is March 16, 2019.

 

As stated previously, this meeting is in conjunction with the IACO Spring Conference and we will be assigned a meeting room as part of our participation with the conference.  The size of the room is commensurate with the number of our people registered for the actual conference.  Due to this fact, we encourage as many of our superintendents, delegates  and other attendees as possible register with IACO.   In order to register you must go to the IACO website ( iacoonline,org )   and click on red-colored  Online Conference  Registration is now open.   The  one-day fee is $90 and full-conference registration is $175.   Again, IACO expects everyone to register for either a one-day or full-conference and our room size depends on the number of our registrants.
