Working Together to Nourish the Nation

2023 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.

2023 Annual Conference: April 16-19

  • ACDA is excited to invite you to join us in Anaheim, California for an ACDA-CADABRA: Behind the Scenes themed experience with unbeatable education and networking opportunities. 

Conference Tracks:

  • Communicating, Collaborating, and Coming Together
