Media Advisory -- News Conference Postponed

A news conference scheduled for 1 p.m. today (May 28) at John A. Logan College in Carterville to announce the Southern Illinois launch of Illinois workNet -- Expanding Access to Career, Education and Work Support Services, is postponed. SIU President Glenn Poshard and Jack Lavin, director of the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, were scheduled to be among the speakers. However, due to breaking developments in Springfield related to the Illinois Works capital plan, the governor has asked all steering committee members, including Poshard and Lavin, to convene at the Capitol today.

Organizers of the event expect to reschedule the news conference and networking reception.
