Message from the President

The Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts has made the decision that the 2021 ILAPSC Conference will again be virtual. The Board agreed that there are too many unknowns with the Covid-19 pandemic. Rather than plan an in-person event only to switch to virtual the last minute, we want to put our full efforts into providing an exceptional virtual conference from the start.

We are excited to announce a new Thursday evening virtual entertainment event for this year’s conference, along with other changes to the virtual conference platform that will only improve on the success of last year’s conference. So please save the date for October 13-15 for this year’s live virtual conference.

For those who attended last year’s conference, sessions that were recorded are now available to view. You may go to our 2020 Conference Agenda and Handouts page to access the videos. Not all sessions were recorded due to copyright restrictions. The links for sessions that were recorded are under the title of each session. No Continuing Education Credit is available for viewing recorded sessions.


Janet Holmgren, President
Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts
