 Bulls Tickets!


Now that the gift giving season is in full swing, Those Who Excel has the perfect gift--Bulls Tickets!  The cost is $60 per ticket (all profits benefit TWE) for the Friday April 5 game against the Orlando Magic.  Derrick Rose is sure to be back and a good time will be had by all. 

Contact Maryellyn Friel at and make arrangements to give the perfect gift this season!

The ETA is planning on joining our IEA colleagues on a trip to Springfield January 3, 2013. We would like to fill a bus and travel to Springfield to show the Illinois General Assembly we want to be included in the solution.


The tentative schedule once the bus arrives

  • 9:30 - 11:00 Buses arrive at IEA Headquarters
  • 10 a.m. - Noon Legislative Appointments (make an appointment in advance of your arrival)
  • Noon-1pm We Are One rally in rotunda Due to space limits, some members might be asked to observe the rally from the 2nd or 3rd floors. IMPORTANT: If the Statehouse reaches maximum capacity, the state police might order that no one else be admitted. A crowd exceeding capacity sends the right message to lawmakers. Be sure to dress warmly, should you end up outside.
  • 1p.m. - 4 p.m. Face-to-face lobbying opportunity (3rd floor of the Capitol on "The Rail")

The bus will be leaving from the IEA Elgin office at approximately 6:30 am and will return to the office early that evening. 


RSVPs must be received no later by noon on December 19, 2012 at
