Welcome to 2022!
I want to start this welcome by acknowledging the dedication, service, and resilience of all of our incredible CCDA members and career practitioners across the state. The challenges of our ever-evolving pandemic reality have further highlighted the crucial role career practitioners play in promoting equitable access to decent work. This is particularly evident as work-related societal phenomena–such as the “Great Resignation,” increased union visibility/efforts, and reevaluations of work/life balance–continue to unfold.
As we enter a new year, our CCDA Board met for our January retreat to reconnect and plan our CCDA priorities for the rest of the 21-22 board year. Many of our board members expressed nostalgia for the in-person connection of the past, in which we did not have to consider masks and physical distancing; yet we are committed to keeping our membership safe, so our events for the rest of the year will be primarily–if not exclusively–in the virtual/remote format.
I’m excited to announce the theme of our virtual CCDA Annual Conference: Theory to Practice in Career Development Resilience and Equity Work. Save the date on your calendars for Friday, May 6th, 2022. Stay tuned for updates on our conference, which will be spearheaded by our President-Elect and Conference Committee Chair, Dr. Cheryl Love.
