ACDA Annual Conference 

Each year, ACDA sponsors a national conference that is unique among other association events. Naturally, there are the usual educational and networking opportunities at an ACDA conference. But rather than being an event where manufacturers and processors, brokers and distributors showcase their products and services, this conference convenes in the spirit of cooperation among its members, with everyone focusing on how to strengthen USDA Food Distribution Programs.

2021 Annual Conference: June 8 - 10

ACDA is excited to invite you to join us online for a New Orleans themed virtual experience with unbeatable education and networking opportunities. Registration now open!

Schedule Highlights:

This conference will include sessions that focus on the following areas:

  • Sessions for both beginners and advanced level employees
  • Community feeding sessions including TEFAP and CSFP
  • Understanding roles and responsibilities of different USDA Foods stakeholder groups
  • How to maximize USDA Foods entitlement dollars
  • Regulations and Guidance on Federal feeding programs
