The Illinois Conference is entitled to send four (4) delegates to the ASC meeting, one of which is the President by virtue of the office. The election is to determine the remaining three (3) delegates to the ASC meeting scheduled June 13, 2014, and two (2) delegates to the Annual Conference scheduled June 14, 2014. Individuals may run for both delegate positions.

The Illinois Conference has some funding to defray the cost of attending. Elected delegates that attend the ASC meetings, the Annual Meeting, and file a written report summarizing the issues discussed at the sessions by July 12, 2014 will be eligible for reimbursement of registration fee, travel expenses, and lodging not to exceed $600.00. The report must be sent to the Conference President. Receipts must be submitted to the Conference Treasurer no later than 30 days after the meeting.
