These two groups, the CADC and the CMGD, gather once a year to discuss issues that pertain to teaching in the visual arts and managing visual art departments, as well as organizing and sharing exhibitions. The two-day event at FIT featured presentations such as "CAA - Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts" presented by Janet Landay, Program Manager, College Art Association Fair Use Initiative; "A NYFA Exhibition Touring Proposal" with David Terry, Director and Curator of Grants and Exhibitions at the New York Foundation for the Arts; and "NY Council for the Humanities Granting" with grants and program officers Kate Sidley and Adam Capitanio.

Each year the conference is held during the spring semester at a different SUNY campus. Previous campus hosts have included SUNY New Paltz and SUNY Oswego.
