WHAT IS THE COALITION IDEAS FAIR?
While the National Leadership Forum features power sessions by Federal partners, workshops by prevention leaders, and exhibits from sponsors and vendors, the Ideas Fair is exclusively for showcasing coalition work. On Monday, February 3rd (5 pm - 6:30pm) and Tuesday, February 4th (8 am - 8:30am), selected coalition representatives will share innovative and effective strategies and interventions, as well as useful tips, tools, and resources to help others incorporate these ideas into their own coalition work. The goal of the Ideas Fair presenter is to synthesize their coalition work into useful actions for coalitions and provide this information in a creative and eye-catching visual display that is easy for others to understand. Ideas Fair presenters will spend lots of time talking to CADCA Forum attendees, making this a unique and exciting networking opportunity for all who participate.
Commercial vendors, community-based organizations, coalitions, and individuals selling products or services or rights to replicate ideas will not be accepted to participate in the Coalition Ideas Fair.
