Update on ILA Events


The American Library Association has cancelled National Library Legislative Day, previously planned for May 4-5. If you had registered for this event, please stay tuned for information from ALA regarding refunds. 


In the best interest and well-being of our community and to help minimize the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), ILA has made the difficult decision to cancel  these upcoming events:

  • ILA Trustee Forum Workshop (March 14)
  • IACRL Teaching Online in Plain Language Webinar (March 27)
  • ILA Marketing Forum Mini-Conference (April 17; will be rescheduled)
  • Elevate Illinois Libraries Leadership Program (April 18)
  • Reaching Forward (May 1)
  • Directors University (June 1-5; postponed and will be reschedule)
  • Spark: Connect and Fired Up! (will be an online event; details coming soon)

Applicants, registrants, presenters, sponsors, and venues have been notified and, in some cases, events will be rescheduled. Please check future issues of the ILA Alert for updates on rescheduled events. 

As we have previously stated, we will continue to monitor the situation and keep you up-to-date on any more changes to future events. If you have any questions, please contact the ILA office at (312) 644-1896 or
