The ADPA's first and foremost obligation is to protect the safety of our members, and the partners and colleagues with whom we work & interact. Given the ongoing concerns about COVID-19, we have implemented a series of actions that reflect our commitment to safe and healthy communities. 

This includes:

  1. We postponed the 2020 Conference, & we look forward to having you joining us for next years convention in Marriot Resort Grand Dunes in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. You can head to our EVENTS page for more information about next years 2021 ADPA Convention.
  2. We have been cancelling all in-person meetings and substituting virtual meetings whenever possible.
  3. We have procedures in place to ensure that we are able to continue the same high level of support for our members & partners. Our members should expect no interruption in our services or a reduction in access to programs & staff.


To all of our members, their friends, families, & colleagues,we hope that these resources will help you all remain healthy & safe during this time.
