After having been cancelled due to COVID since 2020, the ILEAS Conference is back!
Last week, ILEAS held the 2023 Conference at the I Hotel in Champaign. Nearly 300 people were in attendance from over 150 agencies across the state. Highlights include the presentation on the Highland Park mass shooting in July 2022; our banquet speaker, Jean Driscoll, a former 8-time Boston Marathon winner and wheelchair athlete; and the reception at the University of Illinois Memorial Stadium!
It was great to be back together again after three years, and feedback on our new location was very positive. We’re already working on plans for 2024!
