Update from the Executive Director

Given the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the current status of COVID-19 in Illinois, the Board of Directors and Executive Staff, following several days of investigation and hours of deliberation has determined that we will no longer be conducting the Annual Conference at the end of April. The conference has been rescheduled for November 3-5, 2020 and will remain at the Peoria Civic Center and Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette.

We are aware that this new date coincides with election day and will be reminding members to early vote as soon as that opens.  


Dean RomanoStay Connected to Illinois ASBO & The Conference

In light of all that we have been through, and all that we still have in front of us, our goal is to make this the best conference yet.  To come together as a family and collaborate, network and share what we have just learned is so important.  Be encouraged to make every attempt to attend this year’s rescheduled conference in the beginning of November.

The Highlight of Each Year 

As look back upon my tenure as a CSBO, the heart and highlight of each year has been the Annual Conference. It began as my initial connection to the profession. Now, I look forward to it as an opportunity to refuel myself with new ideas and build upon what I am experiencing back at the office. It has been and continues to be an anchor for my annual professional life.
