The winners of the 2014 Poster Contest have been Posted.  View Posters Here.

I would like to remind all of you that it is not too late to register for the 55th ADDA Technical Conference to be held 8-11 April in Kansas City, MO.  This year’s Conference promises to be the best one yet.  Please check out the sessions located under 2014 Conference tab.  So do not miss the opportunity to attend!

This is an excellent opportunity for the student, instructor or professional to receive excellent training, review new textbooks and get a preview of CAD software updates/new releases.  In addition, the professional networking one can obtain is invaluable.

As usual, there will be training sessions on Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) fundamentals and applications offered by certified trainers, ASME Standards review and Sustainable Design.  The Sustainable Design sessions will be expanded to 3 days this year and should offer all who are interested more detail as to what Sustainable Design is.  The Board of Directors are very excited about this offering.  There will be additional sessions also, so please check ADDA’s website,, for additional information.  This will be on the home page under the 2014 Conference tab.

So I encourage all of you to attend and remember that ADDA members get a discount a Conference fees and if you sign-up before March 15th you can save $100.00 more.  I look forward to meeting all of you that attend!  See you in Kansas City!

ADDA is directed by volunteers who have or are currently working in the profession.  Our goal is to support you!

Finally, ADDA’s next Training Conference will be held 8-11 April in Kansas City, Missouri.  Check the website and plan on attending.  I hope all of you have a great 2014!


Remember ADDA is a 501c3 non-profit volunteer association.  All our directors and committees donate their time and effort to improve the profession to benefit other drafters, designers and graphic professionals.  If you would like to assist with any program or be involved with a committee or specific area, please contact me.  Most of our volunteer opportunities can be accomplished through emails and telephone calls.  Volunteering will give you exposure at the next level in your career to improve your network, job skills and personal development.
