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 email@example.com.
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.
