The IACAC Annual Advocacy Day in Springfield is an event where IACAC members have the opportunity to share with legislators issues important to the organization and our ability to serve our students best interests. This year’s Advocacy Day will be held in conjunction with an IACAC Executive Board meeting. Following the board meeting on Wednesday, March 14th, the Government Relations Committee will be walking board and interested IACAC members through the issues we will be discussing with legislators on Capitol Hill the following morning. On Thursday, March 15th we will then “head to the hill” to meet face to face with legislators and drop off information packets at their offices. In addition, we invite those of you who attend to join us for an IACAC sponsored reception for our Illinois congressmen and women on the evening of March 14th. If you have never participated in this event before, it is an eye-opening and empowering experience.
You are invited to attend one or both days; rooms are being reserved at a group rate if you plan on coming down for the 14th and staying overnight. Please contact Government Relations Committee Chairs Anne Kremer, Bill Morrison, or Bob Zigmund, if you would like to join us or if you have any additional questions.
