ILAACP hosts an annual Capitol Day in Springfield, IL for its member organizations from across the state. ILAACP Capitol Day challenges our member organizations to become more proactive with a consistent presence during the annual Illinois legislative sessions.
During the two-day event, the chief executive and board members of member organizations participate in a series of interactive workshops designed to increase their knowledge and understanding of the Illinois legislative process; receive policy briefings from representatives of statewide advocacy organizations; and meet with state legislators and present a policy agenda that strengthens early intervention and prevention strategies and programs.
The event also includes an evening reception and dinner during which member organizations have an opportunity to network with Illinois General Assembly members and other interested parties.
