Conference & Events

CADCA hosts three major events a year. They include the National Leadership Forum, the Mid-Year Training Institute and the Drug-Free Kids Campaign Dinner. The National Leadership Forum and the Mid-Year Training Institute are CADCA’s premier training conferences. Both are geared toward community coalition leaders; prevention and treatment professionals; and federal, state and local leaders. The Drug-Free Kids Campaign Dinner is our annual corporate fundraiser, which raises funds for youth-related programs, scholarships and CADCA’s training initiatives to help coalitions effectively prevent substance abuse in their communities. Over 100 corporate, government and community leaders lend their support each year. The campaign culminates with a dinner held in Washington, D.C.
