There are many benefits to attending the annual AZADV conference. Learn about the challenges and opportunities that zoos and aquariums are facing, and how your efforts can make an important impact. Our conference speakers are industry leaders with years of experience in zoo and aquarium advocacy and conservation. Any AZADV member can share their knowledge with conference attendees by leading a presentation. The conference provides many events and activities for interacting with fellow members. Annual activities include a photo contest, silent auction, raffle, and Zoo Day, which gives members behind-the-scenes access to wild animals and marine life.
