In addition to connection with advising professionals from around the state, being an active member of WACADA includes virtual professional development (no additional cost to members), an affordable annual conference, opportunities to recognize and be recognized among colleagues through multiple awards, and opportunities to apply for scholarships to invest in further professional development. Check out all of the great ways that WACADA supports you under Member Benefits!

The collective knowledgebase, talents, and compassion make our membership base WACADA’s most valuable asset. When we come together, we strengthen each other. The investment and strength we infuse into one another creates a continuous infusion of strength into the foundation of WACADA. Thank YOU for strengthening WACADA by sharing your gifts, strengths, and skills with all of us!
