Illinois has nearly 130 beauty schools, both privately owned and public institutions. Over half of these schools are members of the Illinois Association of Cosmetology Schools. Why? Certainly for a variety of reasons:
- Legislative representation
- Teacher education (at discounted rates)
- Professional development
- Networking opportunities
- Business exposure
Each of these benefits alone is a reason to join IACS. The value added significance of being an IACS member will link your school with the best leaders in the industry. Not a joiner? The reasons are clear why you should.
“IACS lobbies aggressively to protect the interests of IL cosmetology schools and our students. It is an invaluable resource for government relations; not to mention the educational seminars that are offered are outstanding.”
