Two Major Upcoming Events

Career Construction Counseling: A Case Conference

On November 17/18 (depending on your time zone), Dr. Mark Savickas will provide a major new training opportunity to APCDA.  Whether you have used Career Construction Counseling in your work or just want to learn more about it, this Case Conference will provide an excellent opportunity to apply the principles of Career Construction Theory to a real client and to discuss with your peers the best way to provide feedback to this client.  Learn more here.

2023 Hybrid APCDA Conference: New Look at Careers in a Rapidly Changing World

This is a wonderful opportunity to visit Kazakhstan and meet your peers at Nazarbayev University. In order to hold a truly Hybrid conference, we have prepared a wonderful combination of cultural experiences and tours for those who attend in person plus an exciting array of keynotes and panel discussions on major topics which are available both to virtual and in-person attendees. 

The first week, May 16-20, consists of 2 full conference days (May 17 and 18).  On May 16 and May 19 we have provided optional extras.  Those in a hurry are welcome to attend only the regular part of the conference, and those who want to fully enjoy Kazakhstan are invited to attend all 4 days.  A tour of Almaty is scheduled for the afternoon of May 19 and all day on May 20 so that you can visit another part of this vast country and learn more about the variety of landscape and culture.

On May 22, 24, and 26, we will hold the Presentations.  All presentations will be virtual, so no one needs to travel to present at this conference.  Please consider presenting your best ideas and techniques.  Click here for the Call for Proposals.  Remember that all proposals must be submitted by November 30, 2022.  These presentations will be scheduled during 5 hours each of those 3 days.  This means you will have time during the rest of each day and on the days between to take care of your normal duties.  We expect to offer 6 simultaneous presentations, so you can choose the topics that are most relevant to you.  If you wish to attend more than one presentation held at the same time, you can listen to the recordings which will be available for 3 months after the conference.
