For SSA meetings starting in April 2020 due to COVID-19

Commissioners and public can access meetings remotely via conference call. Governor Pritzker declared, effective March 16, 2020, that meetings and quorum can be achieved virtually. Read the 3/16/20 Declaration and Open Meetings Act updates here.

Per City of Chicago DPD staff on August 14, 2020: The City's Law Department wants to remind you the City of Chicago continues to conduct all public meetings remotely as the Governor's order for public meeting continues.  A reminder that SSA Commissions and their appointed Commissioners are an extension of the City, and as such, all SSA Commission meetings are to continue being held remotely until further notice.  This includes providing public access information as part of the public notices that are posted for these meetings.
