2017 NCDA Global Conference

June 28-30, 2017 - Orlando, FL

The Joy of Working:
Positive Approaches to Work, Career, & Life

“NCDA, you’ve just had a wonderful conference in Chicago.  What are you going to do next?”  We’re going to Disney World! and Universal Studios! and SeaWorld!  And we can do all this and more from the comfort of the Orlando World Center Marriott.


It is time to begin preparing for next year’s NCDA Conference, June 28-30, 2017.  The conference theme is The Joy of Working – Positive Approaches to Work, Career, & Life.  What better place to experience joy than Orlando, Florida; one of the happiest places on earth?  The 2017 conference will focus on the positive approaches that we (can and do) use in our work as career development professionals.  There is so much value in our work that needs to be shared and this will be the time and place to collaborate with your colleagues from around the U.S. and the world.


I have been honored to work with an outstanding and diverse group of colleagues the past two years on the NCDA Board of Directors, as well as with our talented and committed association members.  I have participated in and presented at a number of Career Practitioner Institutes and have been impressed with the level of knowledge, skill, and professionalism of our career development colleagues.  The present and future of NCDA is bright and filled with promise. Please join me and more than a thousand of your closest career development contemporaries in Orlando, Florida, June 28-30, 2017.  Bring your family and friends and plan to come early and stay late.  We hope to make this a joyful conference and a highlight of your professional year.
