1. When will registration open?
    Registration is now open! Click here to register.
  2. Can I register more than one person at a time?
    Yes. Anyone, members and non-members alike, can purchase multiple tickets for any event within the CCDA National Conference. However, in order to edit the names of your ticketholders, you must be a CCDA member and logged into the CCDA website. (For organizational members, the primary contact must purchase and manage tickets.) If you are not a member at the time of purchase, you will be required to become a member later in order to edit the names assigned to your tickets. Individual membership is free.
  3. Do I have to assign a name to each ticket as I purchase them, or can I do that later?
    CCDA needs a name, email, organization, city and state for every person registering for the National Conference. This information does not need to be provided at the time of purchase, but if we do not receive it before September 9, 2014, your attendees will have to complete their registrations by paper, on site. Because this can be a time-consuming process, we recommend that you assign a name to each purchased ticket prior to the conference.
  4. When is the last date to register for the conference?
    Pre-event registration ends September 9, 2014. Registration opens again on September 24, 2014, the first day of the conference. New registrations will be accepted at that time, as space permits. This year’s registration is limited to 3,000 attendees.
  5. How do I redeem my 2-for-1 National Conference Registration?
    This benefit is for organizational members only. If you are a new organizational member or if you renewed your membership between October 1, 2013 and April 11, 2014, you should have received an email from Dave Clark, Events and Gatherings Director. This email contains a link and instructions to access this benefit. If you cannot find your link or you have questions, please contact Dave Clark at
  6. What do I need to do to qualify for the student rate?
    CCDA offers an economical registration rate for students because we know that students usually have little expendable income. The student rate is available to everyone on the honor system. We ask that only those currently enrolled in part- or full-time undergraduate or graduate studies purchase tickets at this rate.
  7. Is there anything special for youth at this conference?
    Yes. We have a special youth event within our National Conference, the National Student Leadership Intensive (NSLI). The NSLI has been restructured with scheduled activities from Wednesday to Saturday, September 24-27. This Intensive offers young leaders, ages 16-20, the opportunity to get to know students from other CCD-focused ministries, learn about the key components of Christian Community Development, and consider their calling within this transitional stage of life. Find out more about the NSLI.
  8. Will CCDA offer childcare at the conference?
    Yes. You must register for childcare in advance. More information coming soon.
  9. Can people from outside the U.S. attend the National Conference?
    Yes. Click here for more information about international attendees.
  10. How do I change or cancel my registration?
    To change the name on any ticket you have purchased, you must be an individual member or the primary contact of a CCDA member organization. Once you have logged into the CCDA website, you can make changes to any ticketholder information for tickets you purchased. To change any other information or cancel a registration you must call CCDA’s National Office at 773.475.7370 or email

    If you did not purchase your ticket, the person who did must change your information by following the steps above.

  11. Why does CCDA charge change and cancellation fees?
    Every time the National Office processes a payment, we are charged a fee that is a percentage of the total transaction. We charge change and cancellation fees to cover our costs. Read CCDA’s Event Policies for more information.
  12. What is the cost of an exhibit booth?
    Exhibit booths range in price from $675 to $2000, depending on visibility, location, and size of the booth. CCDA organizational members receive a 25% discount off any level. More information coming soon.
