The ICAE members recently met on September 20, 2019, for the first meeting of the year at the ISBE building in Springfield.  

The Illinois Committee for Agricultural Education is a group of professionals tasked with advising the Illinois State Board of Education on agricultural education.  Pursuant to Illinois School Code, (105 ILCS 5/2-3.80),  the thirteen-member committee is composed of members representing the following groups:  six members from ILCAE, two secondary agricultural teachers, one agricultural literacy representative, one community college agricultural teacher, one adult agricultural education teacher, one university agricultural teacher, and one FFA representative.    The function of the ICAE is to at least develop a curriculum and overview the implementation of the Build Illinois through Quality Agricultural Education plans of the Illinois Leadership Council for Agricultural Education and to advise the State Board of Education on vocational agricultural education.  Click for more info.
