Due to the growing spread of the coronavirus disease, COVID-19, the IAJHSC has decided to cancel the 61st Annual IAJHSC State Convention which was scheduled for April 17 – 18, 2020, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel & Convention Center in Springfield, Illinois.  This decision was not made lightly and was, indeed, a very difficult one to make.  However, when weighing the benefits of holding the annual state convention as opposed to the risks involved if we did, there was simply no other decision to be made.  Scheduling and the continued spread of this disease make it impossible to reschedule the event at this time.

The entire IAJHSC Executive Board deeply shares your disappointment and hopes you will understand the safety of our students and advisors comes before anything else.  We will watch carefully as this situation continues to develop and will inform you of any other cancellations which may become necessary because of it.

Be Safe!!  Be Healthy!!

Scott Backovich

The 2020 convention will feature nationally-known speaker and leadership trainer, Scott Backovich! Witty by nature, caring at heart. Scott’s quirky yet powerful style and message speak to students at their own level, helping them to understand the true potential they hold. Scott understands that students today need to be reached in new and innovative ways. From cell phones to Twitter updates, Facebook to YouTube, teens have both grown up in and created a culture that has redefined what it means to connect. Scott has dedicated his life to connecting with and empowering students everywhere. On any given day, he can be found not only speaking on stages around North America, but also answering questions as a highly sought-after teen help advocate. For Scott, it’s about connecting with them where they are.
