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
Each year we spotlight an administrator, an instructor, a support services staff member, and an adult learner for their outstanding work and leadership in the area of adult education.
Charged with promoting the achievements and successes of adult education to our communities and state and national legislative bodies.
