ISAA conference
Dear fellow EMS professional,

On behalf of the Illinois State Ambulance Association (ISAA) leadership, we are pleased to invite you to attend the 2017 ISAA Annual Conference.

The Peoria Marriott Pere Marquette located in beautiful downtown Peoria, Illinois will once again be hosting the Annual Conference. The 2017 ISAA Annual Conference dates are Thursday, September 21st and Friday, September 22nd.

This year’s Conference has been “right-sized” in response to the economic challenges being experienced by Association members as well as feedback from previous Conference participants. The Conference’s education program will begin at 1 pm on Thursday and adjourn at 3 pm on Friday. This year’s education sessions will focus on administrative issues that impact the Illinois ambulance industry.

This Annual Conference was developed to provide you the opportunity to connect with peers and gain valuable information regarding the current issues impacting the Illinois ambulance industry. This year’s Conference program was developed to offer valuable learning opportunities which can be put to use in the daily administrative operations of your ambulance service.

We look forward to seeing you in September.

Warm Regards,
- 2017 ISAA Annual Conference Planning Team
