ACDA 2020 Annual Conference

  • 12:00 PM
  • Hyatt Regency Seattle, 808 Howell Street Seattle, WA 98101


Due to ongoing concerns about the current outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the recent event ban in our host city of Seattle, Washington, ACDA leadership has decided to transition our Annual Conference scheduled for April 27-30 to a virtual conference.

Our members, partners and colleagues are our top priority and we strongly believe this is the right decision given the current circumstances. In an effort to continue to provide education and resources to our constituents (including valuable CE credits), we are excited to offer virtual attendance to the conference and on-demand viewing of the sessions.

We appreciate your patience as we shift our presenters and attendees to an online experience. 

As always, feel free to reach out to us at with any questions. Stay tuned for more details about ACDA's 2020 Virtual Conference!
