Monday, December 7
8 am - 5 pm
Starved Rock Lodge & Conference Center in North Utica Illinois

This Conference is your time to connect with others doing similar work and facing similar challenges. Gather with free and charitable clinic leaders from across the state to share solutions, gather new ideas and have some fun!

Participatory workshop sessions will address a wide variety of topics relevant to all types of free and charitable clinics, including successful and effective major donor fundraising, cancer screening and prevention, and volunteer recruitment and retention. 

Special Guest Speaker Brent Hafele will change how you think about fundraising and philanthropy. He brings insightful and innovative approaches to engaging donors, as well as tanglible skills you will be able to use immediately. Brent is the former director of the Chippewa Valley Free Clinic in Wisconsin and has an M.A. in Philanthropy and Development from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota. 

Consider driving out to Starved Rock on Sunday the 6th. Take time for a winter walk, swim in the warm pool, and join us for a casual come-as-you-are reception.

Discounted Conference-rate rooms are sold out. Full-rate rooms may still be available by contacting Starved Rock directly. 

    Opening Reception on Sunday evening, 7-8:30 pm 

If your clinic isn't yet a member, it's never too late to join!
