The ANNUAL CONFERENCE was established to bring together Athletic Directors from all parts of our state to discuss new ideas and solutions to problems common to all.

Ideas and solutions are discussed through presentations by speakers and hands-on workshop sessions. Most, if not all of the sessions, are presented by our peers in the profession of athletic administration. Leaders in other fields are brought in to complete the program and maintain its high level of excellence.

The conference is held each March in Traverse City at the Grand Traverse Resort Hotel. Here are future conference dates: MARCH 14 - 17, 2024.
