The 2023 ADCC Annual Retreat
ADCC dance competition owners and staff members, special guests and speakers will come together for the 2023 ADCC Annual Retreat, September 18-20 at The Wigwam Resort in Litchfield Park, Arizona, just outside Phoenix.
Themed LEVEL UP, the 2023 gathering will bring members together for a special celebration of our decade as a professional association. Exciting speakers will offer practical solutions, business insight and food for thought all designed to help your company level up. Learn from peers in breakout sessions, explore how to Level Up your social media game with tips and tricks from a seasoned professional, get to know Business Partners and Vendors who can help you streamline your business, save money, or elevate your company’s customer service experience to the next level.
In addition to business sessions, there will be ample social opportunities as well: an ADCC ¡Fiesta! Welcome Reception open to all on Monday evening, a special social outing planned for Tuesday night, and of course a fun Wild, Wild West Party on Wednesday to close out the event. This year’s Vendor Fair will run Tuesday and Wednesday, September 19 and 20, kicking off with a special tequila tasting on Tuesday, and offering fun raffle prizes both days. New members are invited to attend a New Member Orientation on Sunday, September 17, before the retreat begins.
The Annual Retreat Committee has been hard at work planning. Watch this space!
