IASB invites members to save the dates for three Multi-Division Events in 2023. The regional events will take place on three Saturdays: March 25 in Peoria; May 20 in Champaign; and June 17 in Collinsville. 

The events are designed for school board members and administrators from multiple IASB divisions to come together to learn and gain insight on important issues impacting Illinois school boards.  

Members are invited to attend any or a combination of dates. Details about the three Multi-Division Events are on the IASB website and online registration will be available for IASB members in January 2023. The May event will offer either in-person or virtual registration. 

Programming for each day-long event will include speakers, breakout sessions, and a vendor showcase of participating sponsors. IASB will host an evening legislative networking reception preceding the Saturday event. Scheduled keynote speakers include 

  • Sheila Caldwell, Ed.D., Vice President for Antiracism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for the Southern Illinois University System, on March 25; 

  • Crisis management speaker Melissa Agnes on May 20; and 

  • Leadership trainer Brenda Clark Hamilton on June 17. 

School board members will receive 15 points in IASB's Board Leader Recognition Program per event attended.  

The cost for each event is $150 per attendee and includes lunch. Registration for the virtual option offered on May 20 is $50.
