ACDA Western Division Conference
March 2, 2022 - March 5, 2022
The 2022 Regional Conference Overview
The last time many of us saw one another face to face was at the March 2020 Western Region Conference in Salt Lake City. Past President Kim Ritzer and her team planned and executed a wonderful experience for us that ended just days before the nation shut down.
We are pleased to announce that the next Western Region conference will be held in Long Beach, California. Our theme is “Lift EVERY Voice and Sing!” The performances, interest sessions, honor choir rehearsals and performances, and even receptions will be held in or around the beautiful Long Beach Convention Center. No need to drive or take a shuttle anywhere.
Our performance venues will include the 3,000-seat Terrace Theater and the 800-seat Beverly O’Neill Theater, with interest sessions and exhibitions held in the Promenade and Grand Ballroom at the convention center, directly across the street from the conference hotels.
Cari Earnhart is serving as the Conference Committee Chair, along with Scot Hanna-Weir as Vice Chair. Together with the co-chairs of the various Conference subcommittees, we have met numerous times to brainstorm ideas and devise new protocols to provide a safe and inspirational conference experience for choirs, clinicians and attendees. Rest assured that we will continue to monitor the situation and adjust protocols to address necessary health requirements.
