Message from the President

ILAPSC 2023 Registration is NOW OPEN!

We are excited to announce that registration for the 2023 Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts is now open. You may register for the conference by clicking here or going to You will need to select your breakout sessions during registration, so please view the program prior to beginning the registration process.

As noted in my last letter, there are some important changes to this year’s conference. First, in an effort to continue bringing the high caliber training you have come to expect, and after coming off of our first conference in which we did not break even, we have raised the conference attendee cost to $395.

Additionally, to assist in cutting costs, ILAPSC will only be providing breakfast to attendees who are staying overnight at the Marriott. Almost all of our partner hotel blocks offer free breakfast to their guests, so please eat prior to arriving each day.

Finally, as a result of your feedback from last year’s conference, we have moved up the timing of the conference so our fist general session will start at 10 a.m. and we will end our last session on Friday at noon.

On behalf of the ILAPSC Board of Directors and Conference Coordinators, we look forward to seeing you on October 18!


Janet Holmgren, President
Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts
