Training & Education Programs

United Counties Council of Illinois (UCCI) strives to provide its members with informative and educational opportunities throughout the year. These opportunities take the form of membership meetings and educational seminars. During membership meetings, members are able to engage in exchanges of information with fellow members about topics currently confronting county governance or share stories of success in overcoming such challenges faced by their respective counties. Similarly, during educational seminars UCCI arranges for various organizations, experts, regulators, and officials to come and present to the membership on current topics of interest to county board members and officials. The presenters range from attorneys to state officials, and the topics they discuss span from appropriations to zoning.

UCCI/ICRMT 2022 Schedule (TBD)

As part of our goal to serve our members, and in response to many requests, UCCI in partnership with Illinois Counties Risk Management Trust (ICRMT) offers additional educational seminars to our members and all other counties and units of government who will benefit from these programs.

The past practice of making these programs available at no charge to attendees, be they member or non-member, continues.

Past practice will be followed for any 2022 schedule, with each of the topics being presented on three different dates and locations, giving you the opportunity to attend on a day or location that works best with your schedule.

Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Jake Peterson at 630-203-5234 or or Derek Madeira at 888-377-5845 or

The 2022 UCCI/ICRMT Seminar Schedule will be posted when dates and locations have been finalized.
