Professional Development Hours Available
Illinois teachers can receive Professional Development Hours for participating in the Illinois Band Conductors Symposium. If you are an out-of-state teacher, the University can prepare a general University CEU to mirror the in-state ISBE PDH option. You must let us know when you register if you want to pursue one of these options.
The sessions will be held on Friday at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, 500 S. Goodwin Avenue, Urbana, Illinois, and on Saturday at the historic Harding Band Building, 1103 South Sixth Street, Champaign, Illinois. You will also have time during the symposium to visit the Sousa Archives and Center for American Music, located on the second floor of Harding (to be determined).
Parking: On Friday, metered parking is available in the Krannert parking garage and on the streets around Krannert. There is also a metered lot at the corner of Lincoln and Illinois, one block from Krannert. You can choose to "plug" the meter ($1.00/hour; quarters, dimes, nickels), or use the Mobile Meter payment service which is available for most meters. (Downloading the app and setting up an account can take a few minutes, so you may prefer to do so prior to your arrival.) On Saturday, the symposium will be held at the historic Harding Band building — and metered street parking and metered parking in the Graduate Library lot across Sixth Street from Harding is free.
