ADDA is renowned for its conferences. An ADDA Conference is an unforgettable, life-changing event for adults with ADHD. The ADDA Conference is the ONLY LIVE (in person, face to face, full contact, with REAL connections) CONFERENCE dedicated exclusively to EVERYTHING ADULT ADHD! If you’re an adult with ADHD, if you live with an adult with ADHD or if you’re a professional serving adults with ADHD, you have a vested interest in the future of the ADDA Conference.
It pains me to say there will be no ADDA Conference in 2015. ADDA is struggling financially and the future of all ADDA Conferences will depend on you. We need to increase funding and we need volunteers. If we hope to have a Conference next year, we need to start now to raise money and to organize the million and one things that go into a Conference.
ADDA remains committed to the ADDA Conference, the only live Conference exclusively dedicated to adults with ADHD, that brings together adults with ADHD, their loved ones and the professionals who serve them, we need your help.
As an entirely volunteer-run organization, ADDA’s dedicated people are taxed to the limit organizing the ADDA Conference. Everyone agrees we put on an absolutely unforgettable, life-changing Conference, but while all our volunteers focus on the Conference, work necessary to maintain an organization like ADDA, such as fund raising, grant applications and operations, is pushed to the side. Each new Conference we undertake without sufficient resources jeopardizes ADDA’s many other programs, and our very existence.
ADDA is your organization. A grassroots effort to raise money to support ADDA programs and to fund a Conference has the power to completely transform ADDA, and the lives of many, many adults with ADHD.
We often think “I can’t give enough to make a difference,” but just as ADDA is the creation of all adults with ADHD working together, each giving what they can, ADDA’s budget is the accumulation of what each of us can contribute. In honor of the power we each hold in our hands, to give what we can, and to spread the word to your close friends, friends who also care about ADDA (How about the person who came with you to the last Conference? Or the lifelong friend you made while you were there?) ADDA is asking you to join our fundraising effort and ensure the future of ADDA. Regardless of your financial means, you can support ADDA, and you can make a difference in someone’s life.
