Region IX EMS Conference on May 26, 2016 - New Location! Please review.
Please review the flyer for the IL Region IX EMS Conference to be held on Thursday, May 26, 2016. Due to the response, so far, the location of the conference has been changed to The Wojcik Conference Center at Harper College. This conference is open to system members. We are pleased to have excellent national and local speakers with very relevant topics scheduled and that we are able to offer this at no charge.
The system would love to have as many members attend as possible. Register early, as seating is limited. Please contact Diana Neubecker if you have any questions.
