    NIEAPA’s 2023 Annual Conference Is Coming Soon!

    Become a Sponsor - Enhance Your Visibility

    The 2022 NIEAPA Conference was a success! Returning to an in-person conference was refreshing for us as an organization, and for our attendees and sponsors. Being able to connect face to face is crucial to building the relationships that make NIEAPA a central figure in the Chicago and Northern Illinois EAP and Behavioral Health landscape, and it was good to see so many people so excited to be having those interactions in person again. We had over two hours of the day's agenda devoted to time for attendees to hit the exhibit hall and connect with our sponsors, exhibitors, and each other.

    Building on the success of our past conferences, NIEAPA is excited to once again plan for an in person annual conference in 2023 - this year's theme is The Evolution of EAP! We expect between 200- 300 attendees that represent a range of EA stakeholders and thought leadership. Gain a more powerful presence by becoming a conference sponsor!
