Get Involved in SDA Conferences
SDA sponsors a conference every 2 years. During the interim years, the organization co-sponsors a conference with another organization involved in textile arts. Our most recent co-sponsored conferences have been with Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA). We look forward to presenting conferences, symposia and events that will bring the latest information and innovation to our members.
Would you like to be part of these endeavors? We seek members who are interested in planning events, identifying conference themes and venues, marketing our events and working with volunteers – to name a few.
If you would like to learn more about volunteer options, please contact our Conference Coordinator at conferencecoordinator [at] surfacedesign [dot] org (subject: Volunteering%20for%20SDA%20Conference) .
