Now Accepting Workshop Proposals


April 6, 2014

Ideas in Motion, the 2014 Illinois Asset Building Group conference, will take place on October 8th & 9th at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.

We are now accepting workshop proposals for the statewide conference. Our conference brings together leaders in the asset building field to share promising practices and engage in discussions about how to increase equity by expanding access to the tools people need to build financially secure futures for themselves and their children.

Community leaders, service providers, researchers, advocates, staff from financial institutions, and others engaged in efforts to increase asset ownership or create asset protections are encouraged to submit a proposal.

Innovative programs or policies that advance asset building within communities of color and help eliminate the racial wealth gap are strongly encouraged to submit a proposal. We accept submissions from organizations within Illinois as well as from leaders across the country.
