The HOIC will present its annual professional development event on Friday February 14th at Illinois State University. Educators from HOIC schools will gather for this year’s keynote speaker, Lester Laminack. The HOIC will also present its inaugural Legacy Awards at the event.

Each year, the HOIC plans professional development activities for educators of member schools. Every other year, the event typically includes a keynote speaker. Professional development has been a major focus of the HOIC since the conference formed, demonstrating that the HOIC is about more than just athletics. Besides the annual event, the conference organizes monthly meetings for teachers to gather, share knowledge, and network.
