    Awards Ceremony and Member Meeting

    Tue May 18/Wed May 19, 2021

    The opening event of the 2021 APCDA Conference is the Awards Ceremony.  We are very excited about the slate of wonderful awardees.  I know you will want to be there to honor these very special people who have worked so hard to improve career planning locally and internationally.  We will also welcome our 24 scholars!!!  Please come and meet them so you can chat with them during the rest of the conference. (We could afford 24 this year because of the generosity of so many members and because the virtual conference registration was less expensive.)

    Following the 30-minute Awards Ceremony, we will hold our annual Member Meeting.  While it is important for all members to be present at this annual meeting, we hope others will join us, too. It begins with introductions of our leaders, followed by the new Year in Review Video.  Of course, there is a bit of business – approving the minutes from last year, the Treasurer’s report, and the Call for Nominations by Past President Woongtae Kim.  Then we will use Breakout Rooms to discuss our values and how they related to APCDA.  APCDA needs your ideas and feedback to improve its offerings for the coming year.

    Please find the time in your location:

    Conversations Matter

    Wed May 19/Thu May 20, 2021

    Conversations Matter looks like a webinar.  It lasts 1.5 hours (90 minutes) and uses Zoom.  But it is an interactive goal-setting experience rather than a lecture.  Many career professionals lead workshops like this in person, helping clients set career goals.  This interactive goal-setting experience is COVID-save and allows you to connect with career professionals anywhere in our APCDA region. 

    Also, there is homework before the meeting.  Your homework materials will be sent to you two days before the session. Be ready for a deep dive into your current satisfiers, your strengths, and the short-term goals you want to accomplish.  And be prepared to share them with your new friends, who will be taking this journey with you during Breakout Sessions (small group discussion periods).

    Please note the time of the webinar in your location:

    WIT GRIT FIT - Career Development through Gamification and the Career Design Canvas

    May 21/22, 2021

    The WIT GRIT FIT framework by Avid Adventures synthesises decades of research and best practices in skills and career development, and distills them into an online game, a Career Design Canvas and other intuitive tools which have been used by government, businesses and schools. This workshop begins with the theoretical foundations of the WIT GRIT FIT framework and shows how it all comes together in the Career Design Canvas. Participants then get the opportunity to experience a facilitated, taster version of the game on their own mobile phones before being immersed in case studies on how the set of WIT GRIT FIT tools are helping students and working professionals in Singapore, Bangladesh and the USA.
