Resilience in Leadership ~
Creatively Bridging the Gaps

We would like to invite fellow administrators to join ACCADA as a member, and to attend our upcoming annual conference. Becoming a member of ACCADA will provide you with a professional development opportunity, a network of fellow administrators in clinical academic departments, an opportunity to share resources with other administrators across the country, and access to ACCADA resources. It is an opportunity well worth pursuing.
