2021 Conference Planning Underway
The Illinois Association of School Boards continues to plan for an in-person Joint Annual Conference while monitoring COVID-19 mitigation measures. IASB is optimistic that statewide mitigation policies will permit the return of larger events, such as the Joint Annual Conference, and staff will notify members and attendees of any adaptations due to the pandemic. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to connecting school leaders in person, November 19-21, 2021.
