What is the cost of an exhibit booth?

Exhibit booths range in price from $500 to $1000, depending on the level of visibility. CCDA organizational members receive a 25% discount off any level. More information is available here.

Is there anything special for youth at this conference?

Yes. Youth have their own conference-within-a-conference on Friday night and all day Saturday, Sept. 28-29. The youth conference offers youth leaders the chance to get to know students from other CCD-focused ministries and to sit at the feet of CCDA’s emerging leaders as they share about the key components of Christian Community Development. This year’s conference focuses on the 8 Key Components and Reconciliation. Registration opens April 9th.

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.

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 312.733.0200 or email

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

Read CCDA’s Registration Policies for more information.

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. 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.

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 Sept. 11, 2012, 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 (it also helps CCDA’s staff prepare name badges ahead of time).

When is the last date to register for the conference?

Pre-event registration ends Sept. 11, 2012. Registration opens again on Sept. 26, the first day of the conference. New registrations will be accepted at that time, as space permits. This year’s registration is limited to 2,800 attendees.

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 before May 7, 2012, you should have received an email from Dave Clark, Director of Membership & Education. This email contains special instructions to access this benefit.

What do I need to do to qualify for the student rate?

CCDA offers an economical registration rate for students because we know that they usually have little expendable income. The student rate is available to everyone on the honor system; we ask that only those enrolled in part- or full-time undergraduate or graduate studies purchase tickets at this rate.
