ADEC Update

Abstract Deadline Update: The preferred deadline for proposal submissions is September 11 midnight mountain time. However, with the recent weather across the United States, we felt the need to extend the deadline to the end of the week to ensure submissions were submitted in a timely manner. Submissions will not receive preferential treatment regardless of when they are submitted.

ADEC Website Improvement Update, September 5, 2017
: The rebuilding and transition of ADEC’s website is on-track.  All members are now able to log in but you may need help with setting a new password. Please e mail us at for assistance or call 612-337-1808.

At present, most of the member service links are not accessible via the website. Members are not able to access journals, webinars, conference presentations, or the member directory. We expect most of these services to be available by mid-September.    

Regarding CT and FT Certification and Recertification: The application and application deadlines have not changed other than you may now send your application to ADEC’s new address: 400 S. 4th Street, Ste. 754E, Minneapolis, MN 55415. If you sent it to the old address it will be forwarded to us. If you find you are unable to meet this deadline, specifically due to issues with the change in management, you may request a short extension on this deadline by e-mailing

ADEC and Management HQ are committed to completing these improvements as quickly as possible and we will post regular updates on the status of this project. Thank you for your patience.
