Good News! The ACDA 2020 Conference Planning is underway! The ACDA Planning Committee met in Seattle, Washington for two days at the end of August to start the planning process for a spectacular 2020 conference and we could not be more excited to share the details with you! 

Susan Renke, Allied & Agriculture Representative 

ACDA 2020 Conference Details 

ACDA 2020 will be held at the downtown Hyatt Regency located at 808 Howell Street, Seattle, WA 98101.  Dates for the conference (mark your calendar now!)  are April 27th through April 30th.

Please note that the Pre-cons are going to take place on Monday, April 27th.  Our Pre-con sessions will last anywhere from 4 to 8 hours in length.  The Opening General Session will take place on Tuesday, April 28th and the conference will end on Thursday, April 30th at noon. 

The Hyatt is a wonderful new property within walking distance of so many fun things Seattle has to offer!

Allied / Agriculture Sessions

At the 2019 conference, we had two panel sessions specifically focused on Allied/Agriculture. One was titled “Out in the Field” which told the story of how agriculture products start in the field and the issues faced as they make the journey to the menu. The other panel focused on “How Allied Agriculture Can Help You” with free resources and educational support information for schools.

The 2020 Conference will also have Allied/Agriculture-focused sessions. As we move forward in the planning process, the committee will reach out to potential panelists. In the meantime, please let me know if you have an interest in contributing to the educational content at ACDA 2020. 

In Conclusion
