The ILA Board of Directors is working hard to make sure there are many presentations that ILA members will find valuable. We currently have ILA members presenting on how to make literacy “cool”, a poverty overview discussing how poverty impacts our students, how to decode skills for beginning readers, writing courses, interactive panels to discuss fundraising and volunteer/student recruitment and retention. and more.
We realize how very difficult it is for literacy programs to find the funds to attend professional development opportunities and we know how important these opportunities are for our shared purpose of advancing adult literacy. Please take advantage of this opportunity and join us in April at the IAACE conference!
