Angela Bourassa Current VT/NH CDA President

Hello and welcome to the VT/NH Division of the Career Development Association, NCDA’s first and only dual-state CDA in the nation.

We are excited to announce that since our inception as a state division at the global NCDA conference in Chicago, IL in 2016, we have quadrupled our membership! If you haven’t done so already, please join us and become a member of our dynamic organization of professionals that spans across two states https://vtnhcda.org/about. We welcome your expertise, as we provide you an opportunity to network locally, nationally and internationally while informing you of current affairs within career development across all sectors: K-12, higher education, public and private agencies, private practices, and business and industry.

The NCDA is offering opportunities for professionals to acquire nationally recognized credentials. Navigate to their award winning website to see what credential training is offered in your sector at: https://ncda.org/aws/NCDA/pt/sp/credentialing.

Please note: If career development practitioners have their CDF or GCDF, they should contact NCDA immediately to understand how to ‘grandfather’ their existing credential towards the new CSSP credential BY DECEMBER 31, 2018. After that date, the CSSP credential will need to be acquired without consideration of having a their GCDF.

Locally, we are offering an opportunity for Facilitating Career Development (FCD) Training that will take place on November 19th. Details for this event can be found under our events tab: https://vtnhcda.org/events/.

The leadership team (https://vtnhcda.org/leadership/) is in the process of considering topics for future professional development. Do you have a need, a question or an area that you would like to further develop? Email us at: vtnhcda@gmail.com

Looking forward to an exciting year ahead! Enjoy the beautiful fall season.
