CCDA conducts a fall conference yearly, which typically is aligned around a specific theme. 

Sample Conference Agenda

We choose the theme during our summer board meetings and decide on a date and location.

 We then put out calls to our large pool of 'local' experts to present at the conference and typically have a well-known key note kick off the day. 

CCDA also conducts a spring training where we bring in national and international experts to conduct a daylong training on models that are pertinent to the work we do.  These trainings have been so well received and we feel privileged to be able to bring in the talent we have.

See our past conference page for examples.

We also offer networking events throughout the year.

Stay tuned for more details!
