IACAC’s Legislative Advocacy Day will be held on Thursday, February 21, 2019 from 9 am to 2 pm. Whether you are new to the profession or a seasoned veteran, a friend to your legislator or a stranger, an IACAC fixture or a brand new face in the organization, a political news junkie or an occasional Facebook skimmer, WE WANT YOU to attend the 2019 Advocacy Day in Springfield.
With a new Governor in Springfield, this is our organization’s best opportunity to make our priorities known to our elected officials. We are all in the business of helping students and supporting our respective high schools and colleges. However, many decisions that greatly impact our students and institutions happen at the Illinois State Capitol. You are an expert in our field, and this is your chance to join colleagues and speak with your elected officials about issues that are impacting secondary and higher education in the state of Illinois.
Even if you have never spoken to a legislator before, do not worry! We will train and equip you with the tools you need to engage with your senator and representative in Springfield. Furthermore, IACAC volunteers typically pair up for meetings with legislators. IACAC membership is not required to participate in Advocacy Day.
If you would like to participate in the IACAC Advocacy Day, please sign up.
