ILASFAA Fall Workshops

-- Registration Open--

The Training & Professional Development Committee is so sorry for canceling the in-person Fall Workshops.  We hope next year to resume in-person workshops.  We are still providing the same great sessions remotely.  Below are the registration links.  If you previously registered for one of the in-person workshops, please register again at the links below.  If you have already paid for the in-person workshop, please contact Elyse Weller at (618) 453-4652 or elyse.weller for a full refund. There will be no charge for the virtual workshop.
