  IAVAT Conference  
  John Edgar  5/16/2022 9:12:00 AM  

On behalf of the Illinois Association of Vocational Agriculture Teachers Board of Directors, we would like to formally invite you to the 100th IAVAT Conference at the DoubleTree Hotel and Conference Center (10 Brickyard Dr, Bloomington, IL 61701) June 21-23, 2022. This year, we will be hosting special celebrations for the 100th anniversary of IAVAT, and would love to have as many of our past agriculture teachers join us as possible. The primary day for past ag teachers to attend will be Tuesday, June 21, 2022 for a Retired Ag Teachers Meeting (3-4pm), Exhibitor Social (4-5pm), 100th Anniversary Reception (5-6pm), and the annual Awards Banquet (6-8pm). Please note, there will not be any separate Past President’s Reception this year, as this will be combined with the 100th Anniversary Reception prior to the Awards Banquet. Click here to register for the event. There is no registration fee for guests to attend besides the cost of each meal function attending (Tuesday Awards Banquet $40/ticket). Registration is due by June 1, 2022. A limited number of additional meal tickets will be available after June 1, but will include a $10 late fee. If you are a service award recipient (receiving complimentary banquet tickets) or for other registration questions, please contact Patti Davis (  We are also working on creating a 100th Anniversary History book to be given out to conference attendees. If you are unable to attend the conference, but would be interested in receiving one of these history books, please contact Lori Copsy ( Please feel free to join us for any portion of the conference that interests you (tentative agenda here). For those that would like to stay overnight at the conference hotel, a group reservation link can be found here. We look forward to reconnecting with many of you at this special celebration of a century of service.
