Covid-19 - The health and safety of all attendees is of paramount importance to us.  The effects of the pandemic -- as well as government public health guidelines -- are changing frequently.  At this point in time, the State of Illinois and Cook County are not requiring masks or proof of vaccination.  We certainly encourage mask-wearing if you have a health concern.  We are confident all of our attendees can have a safe and worthwhile day of education and camaraderie.  

Please plan to stay for an hour after the conference ends for a social hour -- cocktail reception at the convention center.  All attendees are invited!
