Wyndham Springfield City Centre

Springfield, IL


Ahoy, the 2018 APA-IL State Conference Hath Sprung!

To all who took part in the APA National Planning Conference in New Orleans, welcome back to the Midwest! It’s time to put our ‘local focus’ on and dive into APAIL18!!! We’re keeping the “SPRING” in our step this year by hosting the 2018 APA-IL State Conference in our one and only state capital of Springfield, Illinois -- September 26th through 28th, 2018. What better way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Illinois Chapter than by doing so aside Abe Lincoln sites, the Mason Dixon Line, and the first ever drive-thru window (true story).
