Illinois journalists will learn more about how to "Follow the Money" at the Spring INBA Convention this year. The convention will be held April 22-24 in Springfield, at the newly-renamed Wyndham Hotel (formerly the Hilton, formerly Forum 30).
Sessions are being planned on the Illinois Budget situation, the differences between township, city, county, state and federal authorities, transparency in tax-supported agencies and the lottery system. INBA Vice President Jason Parrott will serve as chair for the event, after former chair Alex Degman left the state last month for a new job at KMOX radio in St. Louis. Parrott will get assistance from several Springfield area broadcasters as well as INBA board members from around the state.
Check back for registration information in early February, but save the dates.
