ACDA designates regions throughout the United States. Each year a school volunteers to host a conference within its region. ACDA individual and institutional members may attend a conference in any region, based on availability.
All conferences have one week of in-region ACDA member priority period during which only those current members in a region may register for that regional conference. In-region member priority registration opens the second Wednesday in October. ACDA members may register for any conference with availability starting on the third Wednesday in October.
There are 13 regions designated for regional conference organization. Beginning in July 1, 2016, several regions will be reconfigured for a total of 13 regions nationwide. See the 13 region breakdowns below.
