What Does a County Rep Do?
County Representatives are volunteer moms and dads who represent their local communities
and act as a liaison between the parents in their area and the university.
-The responsibility of a County Rep is to serve as a resource person in your local area to
provide information and support to other Illini parents. As a County Representative, your

area will know how to reach you. Through your experience as an Illini parent, you can offer
valuable encouragement and insight to other parents.
-Publicizing Moms and Dads Associations events in the local media, e.g., the Illini Parents
101 Workshop in the fall, Dads Weekend, Moms Weekend, etc.
-Attending Illini Parents 101 workshop and any other County Rep training workshops
Attending Moms and/or Dads Weekends and volunteering during the Associations' events.
-Volunteering as a parent representative during Orange & Blue Days in the Fall, Admitted
Student Days in the Spring, or the Summer Registration Program.
