2014 Arkansas ACDA Convention - Hot Springs, July 28-30

Professional Development Handbook - 2014


President Cliff Ganus provides a summary of the 2014 conference in Hot Springs

The 2014 Hot Springs conference was a fine event, with good fellowship, valuable presentations, a lot of new music, and over 270 registered participants.

Mark Langley polled the membership about their preferences for the location and date of the conference.  If you did not express an opinion and would like to do so, please contact one of the board members.  Options are to stay in Hot Springs or move to Little Rock (or elsewhere); to keep our same week, or move one week earlier.

A highlight was provided by the Honors Choir concert, directed by Derrick Fox.  What an outstanding musical experience for the young participants, and delightful evening for the audience!

Information about next summer's conference will be available after membership feedback is assessed.
