Has your coalition seen changes in community-level outcomes since the implementation of evidence-based environmental strategies? Has your Executive Committee uncovered the secret to effective coalition management and leadership? Did your coalition and its partner organizations conduct an education and advocacy campaign that led to a successful policy or systems change in your community?

If you answered yes to any of these questions – or even if you answered no, but can offer a success story of your own complete with lessons learned and tips for replication in other coalitions – CADCA needs you  at the 30th Annual National Leadership Forum.
This year's theme is Prevention, Progress, Possibilites and as community change agents, we embrace that philosophy in our work to improve the quality of life in our nation’s communities. High performing coalitions are those that have developed broad-based strategic alliances, implemented proven and promising strategies, and achieved population-level change.

As we celebrate 30 years of CADCA's National Leadership Forum, think about to what part of the theme "Prevention, Progress, Possibilities" your session idea will most closely relate. We want to take this time to reflect on the case studies and data of the past in the fight to prevent substance misuse as well as collaborate on ideas for solutions to continue the great work being done.






The mission of CADCA (Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America) is to strengthen the capacity of community coalitions to create and maintain safe, healthy and drug-free communities globally.  This is accomplished by providing technical assistance and training, public policy advocacy, media strategies and marketing programs, training and special events.
