The Asia Pacific Career Development Association (APCDA), which provides an international forum for sharing career development ideas and experience in the Asia Pacific, has partnered with the International Association for Educational and Vocational Guidance (IAEVG) which provides global leadership in and advocates for guidance by promoting ethical, socially just, and best practices throughout the world so that career, educational and vocational guidance and counselling is available to all citizens from competent and qualified practitioners. Together, we will offer a double-conference which includes the best from APCDA and IAEVG, both in-person in Singapore and virtually. 

With it’s 70-year history, IAEVG has long focused on the imperative that accessible and inclusive career, educational and vocational guidance services be provided throughout the life span, life-long and life-wide. Join us online or in-person to share and discover research and experience and recharge your intellectual and emotional batteries. Together, through professional and scientific exchanges, we can rise as a community of practice to meet the global challenges of contemporary society.
