What Is a Career Practitioner Institute?

NCDA offers these smaller, regional conferences for the purpose of

  • gathering practitioners together for a day long event at a low cost
  • allowing NCDA Board members and representatives opportunities to present to and interact with smaller groups of practitioners
  • showcasing NCDA products and benefits to both members and non-members
  • offering CEUs (continuing education units) to practitioners who seek these
  • convening Board meetings
