Leading by Learning


The Joint Annual Conference is an Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) approved activity and licensed Illinois educators who are either registered Conference attendees (board members) or registered guests of those attendees may receive nine Professional Development Clock Hours for attending the full Conference.

There is no cost to registered attendees; however, there is a $50 handling charge for guests who qualify for PD Clock Hours.

Licensed educators must pick up an Evaluation Form (ISBE 77-21A) at the Conference registration desk in the Hyatt during regular registration hours and return the form in exchange for the Evidence of Completion (ISBE 77-21B). In addition, participants will need to sign an attendance roster that includes the educators' IEIN number. Please bring your IEIN number for this purpose.

Note: Forms must be picked up in person at Conference.
