Serving Those Who Serve Our Country:
The ROTC Experience and Military Benefit Overview
Examine the unique options and levels of commitment students have when looking into ROTC programs. Is it better for a student to go into the military directly following high school, join the Reserves, or participate in an ROTC program and what are the benefits available for those considering a military commitment to help pay for school? Misconceptions and outdated ideas about today’s military are also dispelled to better prepare educators to discuss military options with students and their families.
IACAC Members $20 per seminar. Nonmembers $25 per seminar.
Lunch is included. CPDU and CEU evidence completion forms will be available.

Opportunities to Give
Project Reach Donations
Project Reach was established to touch the lives of deserving students. Last year, at district seminars, we collected school supplies for the Harrisburg schools. Harrisburg, IL was hit by a tornado and many students lives were disrupted. The supplies provided by attendees at all seven district seminar events across Illinois made a significant difference to the Harrisburg community and in the daily lives of the students impacted by the tornado. Project Reach welcomes you to donate again in 2013: new school supplies, backpacks, college posters, gently used college guide books, ACT resources and other items appropriate for high school students. Please bring donations to the district seminar event. Learn more
IACAC Scholarship for High School Students
IACAC has established a new scholarship for deserving Illinois students attending an IACAC member high school and (preferred but not required) planning to enroll at an IACAC member institution for college. Monetary donations will be collected (potentially including a 50/50 drawing) at the district seminar events. We invite you to bring a contribution to the district seminar. IACAC president, Todd Burrell (SIUE) has challenged all attending the district seminars to collect $1000 for this new scholarship. Learn more
