The 2024-25 ADEA Emerging Leaders Program is a highly interactive experience, and participants are expected to attend all meals, receptions and team-building activities.

The program does not allow you to bring guests or family members to meals. We encourage you to spend your free time, albeit limited, with your peer groups to prepare for the following day’s activities.


If you are unable to attend, please submit a written cancellation message to Shalonda King, ADEA Senior Manager, Meetings Registration, at by Saturday, June 22. For cancellation requests received by June 22, ADEA will issue a refund—minus a $225 administrative fee—after the meeting’s conclusion.

Cancellation requests received between June 23 and July 5 are eligible for a 50% refund or credit. Cancellation requests received after July 5 are not eligible for refund or credit.

Refunds or credits will not be given for failure to attend, late arrival, unattended events or early departure.


While we look forward to an in-person conference, there is no higher priority than the safety and well-being of ADEA members and staff. Accordingly, we continue to monitor the status of the COVID-19 variants and their impact on the operational status of our ADEA Member Institutions.

ADEA will implement health and safety protocols appropriate to the public health circumstances existing at the time of the conference. Compliance with some or all the protocols adopted by ADEA will be mandatory for in-person attendance and participation at the conference by members, guests of members, sponsors, staff, etc.

Additional information regarding the specific health and safety measures, and any necessary consents you make, will be communicated prior to the first day of the conference. Failure to adhere to or comply with the safety protocols in place may result in removal from the event and/or event premises.

Be sure to check the 2024-25 Emerging Leaders website periodically for the latest conference updates.
