Moving Forward

APCDA’s first and only Virtual Conference was our largest conference ever. We have heard from many happy attendees and are analyzing the Evaluation data and the conference website’s built-in Analytics data to identify lessons for an even better event next year.

Looking forward, APCDA continues to serve professionals, researchers and students in our field by offering engaging resources and events. We invite you to join our webinars and membership events. Please share your news and developments in our weekly news blog. And please join a committee to move our important projects forward.  Some of our current major projects include:

  • The Glossary of Career Planning Terms is being expanded and the current version is being translated into languages other than English.
  • We have been asked to Accredit a local provider of career services and we are working on procedures which could apply to any career service provider in our Asia Pacific region.
  • We continue to organize presentations about career services in our region for career conferences in other areas like IEAVG, CANNEXUS, and NCDA.
  • We are seeking input about interesting speakers and skills that our members want to learn to add to our webinar schedule.
  • We have begun planning the next APCDA Conference which will be held in Singapore in May 2022.

We would love your help with any of these projects.
