2011 Statewide Charter School Conference

Our inaugural Statewide Charter School Conference, held April 11 & 12 at the Hyatt McCormick Place in Chicago, was a huge success. Our theme was Achieving  Excellence for Illinois Students, and our goal was to help participants network , access great information, and learn.

The conference lived up to all of our aspirations with nearly 400 attendees,  just under 100 speakers and 34 breakout sessions. And people will be talking about our General session speakers Howard Fuller and Gloria Romero for years to come. Thanks to everyone for helping us to write a new chapter in our charter history in Illinois.
