These services include a conference retreat center for Northeastern Illinois Universitys Chicago Teachers Center projects funded by the Department of Education; such as, Young Adult Literature (YAL) Conferences and GEAR UP planning retreats for parent/professional development strands federally funded grant activities.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
