Finding Hope in Times of Uncertainty
Featuring Keynote Speaker Gregg Levoy

Friday, October 21, 2022 | 9:00am - 3:30pm | Virtual (Zoom)

Friction is a fundamental property of nature and nothing grows without it—not mountains, not pearls, not people. It's the capacity and willingness to be shaken up that ironically is the key to growth. And these past few years of upheaval— pandemic, political, financial, vocational—have offered us an AP class in getting shaken up.

The CCDA Fall Conference of 2022 keynote is about using that insight to your advantage, that same wisdom which undergirds every coronavirus vaccine and the entire science of immunology: we introduce a little chaos into the system in order to strengthen it, shake it up in order to help it evolve.


$45 for CCDA members · $55 for non-members · $30 for graduate students
