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. 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.

2022 Annual Conference: April 24 - 27

ACDA is excited to invite you to join us for an ACDA-CADABRA themed experience with unbeatable education and networking opportunities. Registration now open!
