Release Form for AADCP Art Contest Submissions
In 2015 we began the Name the Conference contest that asked 2015 conference attendees to submit entries to name the following year’s event. The winner, chosen by the AADCP Executive Board and the AADCP Conference Planning Committee, enjoys a free registration for the following year’s conference. It was such a hit, we have implemented it into each year’s conference as a way to say “thanks” to our wonderful Association Membership!
