2021 Conference Presentations

Did you miss some or all of the 2021 APCDA Conference? We asked presenters who were highly rated if we could share their presentations on our Recorded Webinars page.  All of these presentations were rated highly by those who attended them.  Because they are all shorter than a normal webinar, they have been grouped into sets of presentations about similar topics. Find these recorded presentations on the Free/Reduced Price Webinars page and enjoy watching the ones you missed.

These recordings do not include the keynotes. Keynoters make a living by charging for their presentations.  The ones listed below are free to members, and we are grateful to these presenters for their generosity.

Find them here.

APCDA Glossary of Career Development Terminology, Version 2

January, 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).

We 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
