Briefly, since its inception, CAERDA has contributed to its members'
exchange and advancement of ideas, research or professional projects through the CAERDA-sponsored events, newsletters, journal, as well as individual consultations through email;
opportunities to seek for placement, grants information; and
community services, such as the publication for Chinese parents and a long term professional development activity for private and community-based Chinese school teachers in Northern California.
CAERDA sponsors an international conferences each year, held in Washington, D.C. (1993), New York (1994), Chicago, Illinois (1995), San Jose, California (1996), Houston, Texas (1997), Los Angeles, California (1998), Greater Washington, D.C.

Beginning 2002, the CAERDA conference is held in conjunction with the annual conference of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). Thanks for the generosity of AERA to provide us with space and facilities, the CAERDA Conference is always held on the first day of AERA conference at the same location. However, the CAERDA conference is solely organized by CAERDA; it is not as a part of the AERA program. For future conferences, please see our Web page.
