The Spirit of New Orleans

March 3–6, 2010 Grand Sierra Resort & Casino Reno, Nevada

CADA 2010


Hotel/Meeting Room Floorplan


The CADA State Board welcomes you to The Spirit of New Orleans. We know it hasn’t necessarily been easy for you to get here and we know that this year has been challenging on too many levels. Too few dollars chasing too many problems and too often not enough resources to do the kind of job you want to do, the kind of job you need to do. But you are here now and we’re happy you made it; we’ve been waiting for you. What you need is the Spirit of New Orleans. It’s something that becomes a part of you bringing joy to your heart and music to your soul. For the next four days you will experience a place where custom is honored and festivity is a way of life, where coming together and being a part of something greater than yourself is the norm. It will boost you up, and carry you through the rest of the school year and into the next with enthusiasm and energy to share. We thank you for coming. We thank you for all you do for your students, your staff and your community. And we thank you for lending your spirit to the Spirit of New Orleans 2010 CADA Convention.

Safe Schools Seminar - Wednesday, March 3 - 9:00am - 12:00pm Do students feel safe at your school? Bullying, hazing, and harassment are severe problems on school campuses nationwide. The U.S. Department of Justice states that every month 1 out of every 4 kids is abused by another youth, and 77% of students are bullied mentally, verbally, & physically. Do staff members at your school know how to combat this pervasive problem? Or do they look the other way? Our schools need to be a safe place for teaching and learning or these harmful exchanges will have a lasting impact that disrupt the educational process and maim the school community. This interactive session will attempt to define the terms, identify potential victims and their perpetrators, and finally look at some innovative programs focused on creating safer school environments for both students and adults. Featuring a screening of the award-winning film, TEEN TRUTH: BULLY, this unique session will change the way you think about bullying and school violence and ultimately provide insight on how to make students and staff members feel safer at your school.

Thank You, CADA Platinum Sponsors


1. Attend EVERY session you can. Especially make it a point to attend the “New to Convention Beignets, Coffee and Connections” on Thursday from 7:30-8:45. Nevada Room downstairs. Curriculum for session by The Boomerang Project 2. Open your convention program and check out all the sessions. Choose a first and second choice in each time slot and plan to arrive early—the sessions fill up fast. The Carson and Crystal Rooms are upstairs, the Nevada Rooms are downstairs 3. NETWORK—talk to people who have been to conventions before and find out who they recommend. Also check out our list of recommended workshops below. 4. A great way to meet people is to come to the Area Hospitality Suites on Wednesday evening from 9:00 p.m. until midnight. 5. Attend your Area Meeting (Thursday from 4:35-6:00 p.m.). You’ll meet other advisors who live close to home. Plus there is a raffle and you might just win something fun. 6. The Area Meeting on Thursday is where you get your dinner dance ticket. You trade the voucher from registration for a ticket. (It’s the only way to get a seat at dinner.) The dinner dance (with dessert hosted by Josten’s) is a great time; be sure to wear semi-formal attire and bring your mask (available in the bookstore for purchase), or just wear your nicest clothes. 7. Stop by the CADA Store and the Vendor Exhibits. You’ll be amazed at the resources you’ll find…and the vendor giveaways are a treat you won’t even find in New Orleans. 8. Get your Meet the Pros or Curriculum Roundtable tickets at the Area Table when you check in. (You’ll get other goodies there also, so be sure to check in at your area table right after you finish with the main registration or the New to Convention Concierge room!) If you don’t happen to get a ticket there is usually space available after the ticket holders go in. 9. Wear your convention name badge to everything except the dinner dance on Friday. (But remember your ticket for dinner! They actually collect them.) And speaking of food—you won’t go hungry at this convention. Wednesday evening there will be tasty snacks at the Area Suites and Thursday evening you can nosh at the French Quarter Festival in the exhibit hall. The convention at a glance will have all of the Area Suites listed. 10. Plan to sleep when you get home. You’ll need some Visine and a little coffee—but don’t miss any of the sessions. This only comes once a year.

We suggest the following sessions for first time advisors: Although Workshop sessions are designated as being Specialty sessions designed for all experience levels or having a Newer Advisor or More Experienced Advisor Focus, attendees are free to attend the session of their choice. We think that all of the sessions have value with a broad range of subjects presented. Pick the one that you believe is an area that will benefit your school and you as an advisor. The following sessions may be particularly helpful to newer advisors looking for the basics. Sessions 3 and 4 Understanding and Communicating your Philosophy, Vision, and Core Values Organizing Your HS Leadership Program Nuts and Bolts of Meetings and ASB Finance Friday Fundays X! / Spirit Rally Ideas
