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 both days at the historic Harding Band Building, 1103 South Sixth Street, Champaign, IL 61820. 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: Metered street/lot parking is available all around the historic Harding Band Building for Friday sessions. (Parking is free on Saturday.) You can choose to "plug" the meter ($1.00/hour; quarters, dimes, nickels), or use the Pay-by-Phone 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.)
