One Day bus trip to Springfield, IL

2020 IPS Advocacy Day

Wednesday, March 4, 2020  |  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 Wednesday, February 19th 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 16.  The bus holds 56 passengers, so we cannot accommodate any more than 56 participants.
