Message from the President

The Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts just hosted our first virtual conference and 8th annual conference October 14-16, 2020. We want to thank all of our sponsors, exhibitors, and speakers for helping us to bring our annual conference to a virtual platform in a successful way. We would also like to thank the over 500 attendees who joined us in our new virtual format.

For those who attended the 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.

The ILAPSC Board just had our virtual retreat to start our planning for the 2021 Conference. We are hopeful to have an in-person event, but are also considering how we could make a virtual conference even better should we need to go that route again.

The ILAPSC Board wishes you a happy and healthy holiday season.


Janet Holmgren, President
Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts

All Problem-Solving Courts (adult courts as labeled in the Standards) have to be certified by the Supreme Court. Any new Problem-Solving Court must be certified prior to starting.
