The 3rd AKB48 Group Draft Kaigi (第3回AKB48グループドラフト会議) was held on January 21, 2018 at the Tokyo Dome City Hall.


Like the previous edition, the meeting was a public audition where a number of pre-selected candidates had the chance to be drafted into a team by a group of the team's representatives. Unlike previous years, the representatives were both members/managers and fans.
