The meeting will be held on Friday, February 27, 2015 from 10:00 AM-2:30 PM in Lisle, IL.  Directions and maps will be emailed. Because we have limited funds to host this meeting, we are asking that attendees pay $25 to cover the cost of food, room, and materials.  CICO will assist with other expenses.  Each attendee would be responsible for their own travel and, if necessary, overnight expenses.  We might suggest, however, since this is vital to your counseling programs.
