The 2017 Employer Information Seminars kick off this week. On Wednesday, June 7, we will broadcast the seminar via live internet feed.  You should use the following link to view the seminar (Please note the live feed will be turned on at approximately 8:45 a.m. the day of the seminar): http://multimedia.illinois.gov/trs/trs-060717.html

You will be able to email questions or comments through this live-stream link throughout the presentation. Employer Services staff will be monitoring incoming messages.  We will do our best to answer all questions from both the live and online audiences. A YouTube video of the presentation will be posted on the TRS website at a later date.

The agenda and slide presentation will be given out to those attending in-person. Please reference these digital documents throughout the presentation.

Space is available at most locations. If you would like to register for any of the seminars, visit the registration page.

Who should attend?

The TRS Employer Information Seminars are designed for all individuals with TRS reporting responsibilities, including, but not limited to:

  • Bookkeepers
  • Payroll clerks
  • Business managers

What will be covered during the seminars?

Employer Information Seminars are intended to give the participant an overview of a variety of topics, including Annual Reports, Supplementary Reports, Sick Leave Certifications, contribution rates, membership and more. This year, Employer Services staff will focus on review and reminders. Although this seminar is not intended to cover all aspects of your job, both seasoned and new bookkeepers should find the information beneficial.

What are the times and are there limits to number of attendees?

Each seminar will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. and will conclude no later than 1:00 p.m. Check-in will be from 8:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. 

There is no fee for these seminars, however, seating will be limited in each location. The Springfield seminars will have a capacity of 50 attendees. The Palatine and Mount Vernon locations will have a capacity of 150 attendees. 

NOTE: In an effort to reach as many employers as possible, TRS will be broadcasting the June 7th seminar via a live internet feed. We will be sending the link for the live feed, as well as the PowerPoint presentation and any handouts, in a future email to all employers. A recording of the presentation will be posted on the Employers website by the middle of June.

How do I register to attend one of the seminars?
