IACEA – The Voice of Adult Education in Illinois provides leadership, representation and advocacy for adult education and literacy practitioners in order to advance, unify and professionalize the field. That is our mission, and this committee works hard to ensure that we are fulfilling that mission as we conduct the activities of our association.
In the area of legislative advocacy, we have a committee composed of the chair(s), the three presidents – immediate past, current, and elect, and three members appointed by the chair(s). Each Division selects a representative to this committee, as well. In addition to this constitutionally defined membership, every board member and committee chair, as well as any IACEA member, who are interested are invited to participate with this committee on any activities that promote the enterprise of adult education to our communities and our state and national legislative bodies. Our Awareness Day chair and committee also work hand in hand with the Legislative Committee to make sure that our message is clear – Adult Education and Literacy Works!
