The 2010 APA-IL State Conference in Bloomington-Normal highlights innovative yet practical solutions to transportation issues faced by many communities. Conference sessions and mobile workshops give you the opportunity to hear details behind these initiatives and how to integrate them into your own practice or community.
The League of Illinois Bicyclists has been traveling the state with theIntroduction to Bicycle Planning seminar. Now it's coming to you! Ed Barsotti, the LIB Executive Director, will discuss how to effectively plan for bicycles and implement your strategies.

Delve further with Beyond Complete Streets 101. See how the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission implemented a complete street project and find out about IDOT's recent policy change from its bike/ped coordinator. 
Learn a thing or two from Champaign's engineers in Putting Pedestrians First: why roundabouts really ARE safer, and how the High intensity Activated crossWalk (HAWK) can turn a mid-block crossing into a safe haven for pedestrians.
Learn how to successfully accommodate cars and parking while still encouraging other modes of transportation at the Nuts and Bolts of Downtown Circulation from Tim Doron and Daniel Brinkman of Gewalt Hamilton Associates.

These sessions, along with several others during the 3-day conference, will allow you to earn over 15 CM credits, a great way to fulfill your credit requirements!!!!
