Cost is $50 and includes lunch. The seminar is sponsored by TOI and Ancel Glink law firm. Five hours of education credit will be given for workshop completion. Worth Township is located just off the intersection of 115th and Pulaski Road. Close to I-294 Tri-State (127th and Cicero in Alsip) and about a 15 minute ride to I-57 (159th and Pulaski) which I-80 feeds into. Can also access from I-57 at the 119th Street exit (10 minutes). This is a great "get up to speed" for newly and not so newly-elected officials, for administrative staff and others.
