Join WILL managers and a small group of Friends of WILL each month for our custom “short shots” – brief summaries of upcoming projects and sponsor opportunities, plus a fair trade of ideas about public media’s work in Central Illinois. Enjoy a light breakfast and coffee.

Space is limited at these events, so RSVPs are required. Please send RSVPs to Erin Lippitz at elippitz@illinois.edu. Doors open at 8:30am and the presentation will begin at 8:40am.

Coming up:
