One-day bus trip to Springfield, IL

2018 IPS Advocacy Day
Wednesday, April 18, 2018  |  Springfield, IL
This year participants will travel together to and from the capitol on a charter bus for a 1 day trip.  The starting and ending point will be near Union Station.  We will give a more exact location as the day nears.  We will also be hosting an Advocacy Day orientation on the bus on the way down to Springfield as well as providing a box lunch.   

Please RSVP by Friday, April 6th to reserve your spot for advocacy day.  ONLY IPS members are allowed to attend, so anyone who is not a member would need to sign up with APA/IPS prior to April 6.  The bus holds 56 passengers so we cannot accommodate any more than 56 participants.  RSVP directly to Kristen Malloy at kmalloy@ilpsych.org.

IMPORTANT note:  Along with your RSVP:  Please make sure to include your legislators names.  If you do not know who your legislators are, you can look them up here by entering your HOME address.  http://www.elections.il.gov/districtlocator/addressfinder.aspx.   Please do not use your work address and please make sure to RSVP with your 2 STATE legislators, senator and representative.
