Everything was great this year.
I can’t believe that it has been 3 years already.
Illinois Public Service Institute is a three-year training program which provides instruction expressly designed for public service professionals.
We are pleased to invite you to attend the 14th Annual Illinois Public Service Institute (IPSI) to be held October 4 through October 9, 2015 at the Keller Convention Center in Effingham, Illinois.
The IPSI Planning Committee has carefully planned a program built to address the challenges faced by public service professionals representing communities of all sizes. The IPSI course is divided into three 1-week sessions focusing on leadership development, service excellence and personal supervisory skills. The sessions are non-sequential and one may begin the three-year cycle at any time.
Complete registration information including the fees are included in this packet. The tuition is $695 and does not include lodging. The hotel rates are approximately $99 per day. Institute activities begin with registration on Sunday afternoon and end at noon on Friday. Classes are held from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily with the exception of Monday when classes extend into the evening. Participants are expected to attend evening functions that include: classes, group meals and activities. Wednesday afternoon and evening are considered “free time” to makeup for the long day on Sunday. There is a wide variety of activities available for participants looking for opportunities to get better acquainted with their peers from across the state.
The Advanced Institute is now offering IPSI graduates an opportunity to sign up for any single day or combination of days that best fits their training interest. This will replace of the traditional offering of two and one-half days, IPSI graduates will see this as perfect opportunity to reconnect with IPSI colleagues or join others from your organization to support their IPSI experience and benefit from attending sessions together. There will be separate registration forms that allows for daily pricing that will cover meals, class materials and instruction.
Continuing education credit is available as well as college credit through Southern Illinois University and Northern Illinois University. Both Universities will offer up to three hours of academic credit in an independent study format at either the undergraduate or graduate level for completion of each year of the Institute. Information about college credit and continuing education credit will be available at the beginning of the Institute.
IPSI continues to grow and to maintain the best possible learning environment, we must limit the number of people registering for their first year to a maximum of fifty. In recent years, there have been people that were not able to register because the class was full. So keep in mind that the class size is limited and register early.
