IACEA members:

As you know, COABE membership is one of the benefits that comes with your IACEA membership. Since you are currently a COABE member, you would have already received the email about the COABE Virtual Conference planned for October 25 and 26. (See the details below.) It came to the IACEA Board’s attention that for $500, we could offer access to this conference for all IACEA members for FREE. Given that staff development opportunities in Illinois have been hampered by our state budget impasse, IACEA decided this virtual conference would be an excellent resource to offer to our membership.

Also, if you have colleagues that are not currently members, remember IACEA membership is free this year. All one needs to do is click on the “Membership” tab at the top of the page and download the membership application and fax (618-826-5471) or scan/email it to Shari Crockett at s_crcktt@yahoo.com. This will need to be done as soon as possible, so your name can be added to the membership list with COABE.

Here is all you have to do to if you would like to participate in the conference:

You will need to register online HERE and simply check the box that indicates COMP16. This way you will register free of charge. Note: COABE will compare our list of IACEA members to those from Illinois that register.

Thank you,

The IACEA Board
