2019 Topics Day

It’s time to join forces in Springfield for the Township Officials of Illinois’ 37th Annual Topics Day. TOI invites you to become a part of our legislative team, and we need you to be present on this very important day for townships at the Statehouse. Township Topics Day allows township officials from throughout the state to meet with their legislators and others in the State Capitol to discuss matters that directly affect township government. We encourage you to call your legislators prior to April 3rd to set up an appointment so you will have a better chance of talking with them when in Springfield. You will be given TOI’s legislative agenda that includes bills of interest that you may share with your legislators. We urge you to make use of the afternoon to help make townships visible!

When: Wednesday, April 3, 2019 – beginning at 11:30 am
Where: Day begins at the Wyndham City Centre (Downtown Springfield at 700 East Adams Street) In the Ambassador Room (Concourse Level)

Registration is $75 per person which includes the day’s activities, handouts, lunch and the reception. All attendees must pay a registration fee. If you wish to purchase a non-township official guest registration for your spouse/guest which includes just the lunch and reception, the fee is $55.00. Non-township officials will receive a name badge that must be worn to attend the functions. No refunds for cancellations after March 27 and no walk-in registrations accepted on April 3.
