2017 Presidents' Reception

2018 Convention Look Ahead

Greetings! On behalf of the ICTA Board, I am thrilled to invite you to our 2018 Annual Convention, which will be held from Thursday, September 27 through Saturday, September 29, 2018 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Bloomington, Illinois. Our room rate at the DoubleTree is $105 per night. The theme for next year's convention is "Roots, Renaissance, Revolution." As we move forward, we need to remember where we've been and who came before - our roots. We are currently in a Renaissance period where we have a new name and brand and fresh ideas, and as we look to the future, we are headed into a period of Revolution where we as an organization will need to advocate for ourselves, each other, and our disciplines. We are in the midst of exciting times where each one of us can make a huge difference, and I hope you will join us next September. If you wish to be involved in any way, please feel free to contact me: Lisa Stout, lstout@wacohi.net.
