The ADC offers four enormously valuable workshops annually - lead by recognized development professionals and by veterans working in our own member schools. The ADC provides a venue for networking, for sharing ideas and resources. The ADC allows the people who are responsible for advancing our schools to spend time learning with their peers.
ADC workshops are held on the Priory Campus of Dominican University in River Forest - no travel expenses, no parking fees.
The Priory Campus is located at the corner of Division and Harlem in River Forest. The nearest major intersection is Harlem and North. ADC workshops are held in the auditorium at the southeast portion of the first floor of the Priory.
Coffee and rolls are available in the auditorium beginning at 8:30. Use this time to network with people who have the same joys and challenges in their work that you have. The program begins at 9:30 and ends between 11:30 and 12:00.
