Join the IPA Legislative Committee

Illinois Principals Association's Legislative Committee is open to all IPA members and intended to provide guidance for IPA's advocacy efforts. The committee meets in-person once a year at the annual Education Leaders Conference but is active throughout the year in the following ways:


  • Participating in the IPA program by inviting local legislators to your school.
  • Sending messages or making phone calls through on pending legislation.
  • Participating in surveys on legislative proposals.
  • Representing IPA and school leaders on statewide task forces and committees.
  • Reaching out to local legislators to share thoughts on pending legislation and school leadership.

Our goal is to include leaders from diverse backgrounds and experiences; all regions of Illinois; and all school types, sizes, and grade levels.


Please to join.
