2017 Annual Learning Conference

Join us for the Illinois Association of Community Action Agencies 2017 Annual Learning Conference May 7-10, 2017!  This year's theme is "Charting the Course."  The theme moves forward with relevant and timely topics to present to our audience on Community Action's constantly evolving landscape. Community Action is working harder than ever to establish more opportunities to help individuals establish self-sufficiency. However, there are still formidable challenges to navigate. 

Along with our signature events, we have some great keynote speakers lined up and six exciting conference tracks planned which are crafted to maximize your learning opportunities.  Our conference tracts are:  

  • ROMA Next Generation
  • Examining Poverty
  • Advocacy and Public Policy
  • Professional Development
  • Affordable Housing Institute 
  • Energy (LIHEAP, PIPP, Weatherization)

Whether you are a member of the staff, board, or the executive director of your agency, this year's sessions are sure to motivate and inspire you!!
