Greetings fellow Biologists,

The Illinois Association of Community College Biologists cordially invites you to attend our 49th Annual Conference on November 10 & 11, 2023. It will be held once again at the Starved Rock Lodge & Conference Center located on the grounds of beautiful Starved Rock State Park in Oglesby, IL. 

This year we offer an exciting line-up of speakers and will have an optional walking tour at both the beginning and end of the conference.

Find the 2023 registration form here. The conference registration fee is tiered, with adjunct faculty members, graduate students, and lab technicians paying a reduced rate. It is our goal to attract a wide variety of participants. Please register by Friday, Nov. 3 to avoid a late fee and to ensure inclusion of your contact information in the conference program.

A block of rooms has been reserved by IACCB in the rustic Starved Rock Lodge; please book by Tuesday, October 10 to claim a room in the block. There are also several hotels in the area, and we hope wherever you choose to stay we can enjoy socializing on Friday night at the Back Door Lounge which will have free live music. 

As in past years, we ask that you kindly donate an item to the Scholarship Raffle, where all proceeds go to support student scholarships. We are proud to have given away over $14,000 in scholarships since 2006. Thank you for supporting our students!

We hope to see you in November!
