Do you know what else flew by? The deadline for the APAIL21 Call for Sessions and Mobile Workshops.


We've heard you're busy and that's why we're giving you more time to send in your ideas. Submit a proposal by Friday, May 7th @ 5pm.


Save-the-date and start planning your great sessions, unique mobile workshops, and fun social events.

Similar to past years, the 2021 APA-IL State Conference will offer sessions in several different formats. This will allow for greater variety and the opportunity for attendees to learn in different ways. We encourage you to be creative, think outside-the-box or out-on-the-street. Whether it be an interactive workshop, a roundtable discussion that challenges views, or a session that brings together diverse, emerging and underrepresented voices, imagine a session YOU would enjoy attending.

  • ​Debates

  • Facilitated Discussions

  • Fast, Funny, Passionate

  • Law/Ethics Sessions

  • Mobile Workshops

  • Speed Planning

  • Technical Demonstrations

  • Topical Panel Presentations

  • Other

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the APA-IL is currently working with conference consultants and the Bloomington-Normal Marriott Hotel & Conference Center to determine the feasibility of holding an in-person conference. The final determination on the 2021 conference location is TBD. When submitting a proposed session, you will be able to express your preferred venue (in-person, virtually, both) to present your session.
