The 18th International IPS Learning Community Annual Meeting, May 29 – 30 (half-day), 2024, will be held at the Hilton Chicago, 720 S. Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60605.
This hotel is in the heart of the city overlooking Grant Park (the Bean) and Lake Michigan. You will be just a 12 minute walk from the Art Institute of Chicago, a 18 minute walk to the Shedd Aquarium, a 30 minute walk (or 15 minute train ride) to shop on the Magnificent Mile, and a half hour train ride to The Museum of Science and Industry.
Getting to the hotel from O’Hare Airport is easy by taking the blue train to the LaSalle stop and then walking ten minutes. Or take the orange train line from Midway Airport to the Roosevelt stop, also a ten minute walk to the hotel.
We encourage participation from the five stakeholder groups: mental health leader, vocational rehabilitation leader, IPS trainer, family leader, and peer leader. Please let us know if there are others whom you would like invited as the meeting is by invitation.
The conference meeting will include keynote speakers and discussion groups. All topic areas relate to employment and recovery. Examples of topic areas include personal recovery stories; equity, diversity and inclusion for IPS; learning communities: new research findings, mental health and vocational rehabilitation partnerships for IPS; and international updates.
The per-person conference fee includes two nights of hotel lodging (May 28 and May 29) and conference meals (including two breakfasts, one lunch, and the awards dinner, on May 29). You will be responsible for your own travel expenses.
A block of rooms has been reserved for the meeting so please do not contact the hotel to make reservations. Once you have registered, lodging will be confirmed and a rooming list will be submitted to the hotel by our staff.
