The Apra-IL board has decided to cancel the April 22nd Spring Symposium. In making this decision, we sought information from health experts and our government officials, both local and national. We seek to approach this issue with an eye toward protecting all members of our community, with particular attention to those who are most vulnerable.


We will be sending out regular emails to our contact list with information about online events (both free and those with a small registration fee) hosted by other Apra chapters. If you know of an upcoming event you’d like shared, please email us at apraillinois@gmail.com to add the event to our calendar and future emails.


The Apra-IL board is actively planning for online webinars to be available this spring as well. For previously recorded webinars, go to the Webinars section of the Apra-IL site (accessible only to those with active memberships).


Because your membership sustains our organization, we’d ask that you consider renewing your Apra-IL membership this month as many of you likely planned to do in conjunction with registration for our spring event. Year-long membership costs $40 and gives you access to:

  • Discounts on events
  • Free event attendance for member appreciation parties, happy hour, webinars, and more
  • The Apra-IL chapter membership directory
  • Monthly member emails which contain information about upcoming chapter and regional Prospect Development events, blog content, and job postings
  • A curated links library with links for:
    • The Career Center – information on how to write the perfect resume, job hunt, etc
    • Research Resources
    • Relevant blogs
    • Apra-IL Salon content – targeted information on recent topics of interest including cryptocurrency and valuing art
  • Webinar recordings
  • Job postings (available through following our social media: Twitter and LinkedIn)
  • Yearly scholarships for professional development funds


We wish you all health and peace during this tough time. Please let us know if you have resources to offer other members, need assistance getting in touch with others in our industry, or any other help we can offer you.
