The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation: Past, Present, and Future
For the duration of Illinois’ Bicentennial, IDFPR will host an online, interactive e-exhibit modeled after those hosted by the National Archives and the Smithsonian Institutions. Our licensees, our state’s educational providers, and of course the general public will have the opportunity to learn about the history of one of IDFPR, which licenses roughly a quarter of the state’s professionals who make us #illinoisproud, via this free online resource. The exhibit will guide the user through the history of occupational licensure and financial regulation in our state before discussing current state and advances the Department has made since 2015 (most notably the conversion to an entirely online experience for licensed individuals and firms). It will also focus on the Department’s mission of fostering an economic climate in which future generations of working Illinoisians (professions/career paths to be detailed in exhibit) will prosper.
