Please Join the APCDA Glossary Taskforce

We have members from several countries in which English is not the only spoken language.

With that in mind, we created a Glossary of Career Development Terms and we are in great need of volunteers to help us to expand our list.

APCDA Glossary of Career Development Terminology, Version 2

April, 2022
By the Glossary Taskforce

APCDA is proud to announce the release of Version 2 of the English version of our Glossary of Career Development Terminology containing over 100 terms.  This is the product of years of work by a very dedicated group of career practitioners.  The names and bios for the team are at the front of the document. The Ethics and Standards Committee, which is chaired by Dr. Vandana Gambhir Chopra (, is responsible for the Glossary (in addition to ethics and standards).

The new Glossary Taskforce has already begun work on another 60 terms and is seeking fresh volunteers.  Our goal is to have Version 3 ready by May, 2022.  Please contact Dr. Chopra at to volunteer.

We also have translations of Version 1 into several languages.  We would love to have more languages, and updates from Version 1 to Version 2.  If you are interested in translating the glossary into another language, please contact
