The aims of the association are:
- To bring a structured approach to the adjudication of drama, music and light entertainment competitions of all kinds.
- To protect the professional interests of its members and to provide a forum for furthering the expertise of members.
- To liaise, where appropriate, with other bodies, or persons, concerned with drama or entertainment.
- To promote the development of amateur theatre in Ireland.
Seminars, workshops, lectures and other educational activities are organised by the association for members (who are required as a condition of membership to attend).
The ADA acts as a referral agency for festival organisers seeking qualified adjudicators and as an admissions body for aspiring adjudicators.
