Whether Near or Far … Together, We Can!
What an exciting couple of months! First, I want to thank our friends at VSAC for their collaboration and a wonderful conference on Transition and Career Planning, May 23rd at Lake Morey, VT. This conference was the first of several New England professional development opportunities as we (VT/NH CDA) are also part of the New England Consortium (NEC)CDA. Up above I am pictured with my dear friend and colleague, Ed Colozzi from Massachusetts, who is responsible for spearheading this three-year, collaborative effort, now made official as of March 2019! We have opened our borders for travel, all you need is a membership from one of the New England State CDA’s: VT/NH, ME, MA, CT, RI. Your membership at only one state CDA has now become your passport for PD opportunities New England-wide at the hosting state CDA member rate. Thank you to all our sister state CDAs for making it possible!
June brought me to Houston, Texas for the 2019 NCDA Global Career Development Conference. I had the sincere pleasure of co-presenting with Amy Jaffe from Maine on our NEC CDA efforts and it was most well received by state leadership of the NCDA. This type of collaboration has inspired others to form similar partnerships in the future. Thank you Carolyn Jones for inviting us to present!
Collaboration is the theme, and you will find that this organization at the national and state level, has leaders who are so generous with their time, talent and commitment to serving the needs of their members and those they serve who seek career development opportunities. I am a proud member of the NCDA since 2006 and a founding member of the VT/NH CDA (Est. 2016). If you are in the VT/NH area and want to instantly become part of a huge collective of professionals, join now by clicking here: https://vtnhcda.org/membership/
I wish you all a safe and most celebratory Independence Day this 4th of July!
VT/NH CDA President
