1. CDE/LDE Updates
After the IAVAT Board of Directors met yesterday to discuss updates to CDE/LDE rules, the website has been updated with those rules and resources (here).
Please note, at this time, UIUC is unable to host the State Dairy Foods contest in person. The IAVAT Board is looking into alternative options for the event, and further information will be shared as available.
It is the intent of the IAVAT Board to host all remaining state contests in-person, though event formats and registration policies will be determined by COVID guidelines in place for event hosts at the time of each contest. Further updates and information will be shared regarding event updates closer to each event.

2. IAVAT 100th Anniversary
The Illinois Association of Vocational Agriculture Teachers will be celebrating our 100th Anniversary during the 2022 IAVAT Conference at the DoubleTree Hotel and Conference Center in Bloomington, IL on June 21-23, 2022. Please make plans to attend this historic celebration of our organization. Further details regarding hotel reservation and registration information will be released in the coming weeks.

3. Region IV NAAE Conference
Illinois will also be hosting the Region IV NAAE Conference at the Thelma Keller Convention Center in Effingham, IL on June 28-30, 2022.
