The AUCD Conference brings together diverse network members, partners from outside the network, and experts from the field to help us all develop as leaders. This Webinar will help Conference attendees as they prepare for their trip to Washington, DC. It will provide a brief overview of AUCD and orient attendees to the content and structure of the 2015 AUCD Conference. This year's theme, "Growing Leaders, Driving Change," will examine how we develop strong leaders, support them in their work, and collaborate with others to reach our mutual goals. Whether you're a newcomer to the field or a seasoned professional, the AUCD Conference provides countless opportunities to share with and learn from colleagues and peers. The 2015 AUCD Conference will feature nearly 200 concurrent and poster presentations over the days of the conference on topics ranging from policy to research to state and community projects and much more, offering a multitude of opportunities for fruitful discussion.

Attendees will learn how to navigate the week's agenda through the conference app, website, or in the printed program and find events that match personal interests and expertise and/or topics key to their position responsibilities and organization's initiatives. This is also an opportunity to address new attendee questions. Tune in to learn how to get the most out of your time at the AUCD Conference!
