First Trustee District


Welcome to the ADA First District Caucus website. It is our intention to use this site to post timely information relevant to the Caucus, and to facilitate the flow of information among the delegates, alternate delegates, and staff throughout the year. It will not be a forum for opinion, but rather a resource for materials needed for our deliberations, including communication from Caucus officers, ADA Council reports, and late communications from the ADA prior to the House of Delegates.

It is our intention that this resource will strengthen our District and the communication among our states in our role on the national level.

We look forward to your comments and suggestions.
