ADEA Annual Session Program Committee

The ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition is the flagship event of the Association. Its programmatic, evaluative, and fiduciary outcomes are critical not only to ADEA, but also its members, participants, and the profession.

To ensure the success of the meeting and the Association's continual pursuit of programming that follows the Strategic Directions, Core Values, and Mission of ADEA, the ADEA Annual Session Program Committee (ADEA ASPC) is an ad hoc advisory committee that was established to assist in planning the educational content and networking opportunities of the ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition.
