IAN 36th Annual Spring Virtual Conference

2022 IAN Spring Conference Update

Many thanks for attending the Illinois Afterschool Network’s (IAN) Spring Virtual Conference, held April 7-9, 2021.  This was our first time coordinating the conference virtually and we had close to 600 registrants, including providers from Illinois and 15 other states. We have appreciated the positive feedback and accolades on hosting our three-day conference successfully in a virtual format.

IAN staff and the Board of Directors continue to carefully monitor the pandemic as we begin to transition to stage five of reopening in Illinois. We have discussed at length the possibility of having to pay a hefty penalty to a hotel if we sign a contract and then must cancel before the conference occurs. Though we are optimistic that the COVID numbers will continue to decrease here in Illinois, out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to hold our 2022 Spring Conference virtually. The tentative dates are Wednesday, March 30 through Friday, April 1, 2022.As we look forward to the beginning stages of conference planning, please know that we are confident in delivering another high quality, engaging, impactful and interactive conference in a remote setting. We hope that you will save the dates now and make plans to attend! More information to come in the following months!

Sincerely yours,
IAN Board of Directors and Executive Director
