Welcome to the Asia Pacific Career Development Association

APCDA connects career development professionals who work in or are interested in the Asia Pacific region and provides a global forum for sharing career development ideas, research, and techniques that are effective in the Asia Pacific region.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our annual 2021 APCDA Conference. Despite the challenges the pandemic has caused, we continue fulfilling our mission through virtual meetings, webinars, online regional gatherings and the Virtual Conference in May.

APCDA is a multinational and multi-dimensional hub for career professionals to connect and exchange experiences, new ideas and advocate for the development of career services in the Asia Pacific region. We are dedicated to sharing research and best practices among career counselors and practitioners. Our 300 members live in over 35 countries.  Our 8 years of service has proved our value to our partners and members. We will continue to nurture our members and strive to improve career services in our region.

We look forward to coming together virtually in May 2021 at our Conference.  We may feel some sadness in missing the opportunity to see each other face-to-face, shake hands, exchange business cards, and hold discussions during tea breaks. However, we have found a friendly virtual conference platform that will help us to interact for 10 days as if we are in one place. Working through these difficulties will help to make us stronger and closer to each other.

Our Virtual Conference promises to be an exciting event without travel hassles, yet informative and meaningful by including even more participants from the Asia Pacific region. It includes 2 Keynote presentations, 2 Professional Development Institutes, 48 Presentations, and several fun activities.  We have also scheduled a number of new events and product demonstrations to help attendees get acquainted and ensure you are able to develop new relationships and take advantage of the rich variety of talent available.

Connect with APCDA to broaden your professional network. Come and join us May 19 through 29, 2021 to meet a vast community of career professionals gathered for a mission!
