The Chicago Suburban Antiques Dealers Association (CSADA) is a not for profit organization of 40 members, formed in 1957, whose purpose, as stated in their by-laws, is:

"to maintain the best interests of the business of dealing in antiques, to encourage high calibre shows of antiques, to encourage educational programs for dealers and collectors, and to support organizations devoted to historic preservation and educational pursuits."

Their members follow a strict code of conduct, which guarantees ethical standards of practice and high levels of consumer protection for collectors buying from member dealers.

The association is active in organizing regular antique fairs, shows and events across the state, along with awarding grants to historic preservation efforts and educational institutions such as the Geneva History Centre and the Aurora Historical Society.
