Members of the Illinois Association of School Boards can learn more about programs and services available to their school districts while attending the 2019 Joint Annual Conference. An information room will highlight IASB’s support and expertise in the areas of governance, training, policy services and school law, and information resources.

The room, named the “IASB Info Center,” will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, in the Columbus G/H Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency East Tower. The prime location is across from the IASB Bookstore in the main registration area of the Conference headquarters hotel.

Visitors can explore member services through materials, displays, and conversations with IASB directors and staff. Demonstrations led by knowledgeable staff will cover web-based policy services, online learning opportunities, and navigating the new iasb.com. Subscribers to PRESS Plus, IASB’s full-maintenance policy update service, have been invited to receive targeted support by reserving a 15-minute appointment with a policy staff member. On Saturday, IASB Field Service Directors will be stationed in the Info Center to meet with school board members.

Other displays and activities designed to engage visitors include a live tweet wall and photo gallery. Attendees can also pick up Conference badge ribbons and participate in prize drawings in the Info Center. New “Fast-Track” orientations (offered Friday at 8:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 3 p.m.; and Saturday at 1 p.m.) will tell first-time attendees what they need to know about Conference and how to get there.

Additional information on IASB Info Center activities will be available in the official Conference program book.
