J. Michael Smith, Esq., President of HSLDA
Illinois-Announcing the 2002 Heart of Illinois Convention of Home Educators

From the HSLDA E-lert Service...

April 8, 2002

Dear Illinois Members and Friends,

Home School Legal Defense Association thanks you for your loyalty and
partnership with us. Only by working together can we defend home
school freedom in Illinois and across the nation. As you know, HSLDA
has not raised its membership dues in over 15 years of operation.
We've been able to keep the cost of membership low because you-our
members-have spread the word about HSLDA to your home schooling
friends and family. In the face of steadily mounting legal and
operational expenses, the best way to keep our membership rates down
is to increase the size of our "family"-encouraging more home
schoolers to join together in the battle for freedom.

Toward that end, HSLDA is offering a special one-time incentive for
new members at the 2002 Heart of Illinois Convention of Home
Educators. First-time members who join at the conference receive $10
off their membership in addition to any HSLDA group discount (15
percent off the membership fee) and a free book.

Also, current members can renew for two years at the conference and
receive a free book. Invite three of your friends to come to the
conference and sign up as new members and you receive a free year of

The 2002 Heart of Illinois Convention of Home Educators will be held
April 19 and 20 at the Peoria Civic Center, 201 SW Jefferson Street,
Peoria, Illinois. For more information about this event, please
contact the Association of Peoria Area Christian Home Educators at
(309) 589-1307, e-mail, or visit

We look forward to seeing you and your friends at the 2002 Heart of
Illinois Convention of Home Educators! Please come by our table and
say "Hi!"


J. Michael Smith
