April ILCMA Professional Development Event & Metro Luncheon

The ILCMA  Professional Development Committee Presents:  Strategies for Addressing Human Services in Your Community

In it’s second year with no budget, the State of Illinois has more than $11 billion dollars in unpaid bills. A portion of those unpaid bills are for health and human services providers throughout the State that have had to lay off staff, peel back operations or shut their doors entirely. This leaves local governments to provide a larger share of health and human services, including mental health services, than ever before.


Join the ILCMA Professional Development Committee for a panel discussion on the outlook of health and human services in Illinois, how local governments will be affected by these trends and strategies for delivering these services on a local level.


Panelists include:

Steve Lepse, Director of Family and Community Services at the Salvation Army

Sergeant Stephanie Mack of the Arlington Heights Police Department

Maureen Murphy, Human Services Director, Village of Skokie

Please join the Metro Managers for the April Luncheon:  Behind the Scenes:  A Different Look at Illinois Politics Featuring Brad Cole, IML Executive Director

Mr. Cole’s public sector experiences include serving as Deputy Chief of State to Illinois Governor Ryan, Mayor of the City of Carbondale, and Downstate Director for U.S. Senator Mark Kirk.
