PRESIDENT'S WELCOME

Hello PACDA Members and Friends,

I am extremely proud to announce that NCDA has honored PACDA with an “Outstanding State Division” award. Thank you NCDA for acknowledging the talents, time and successes of PACDA’s many volunteers.

PACDA celebrated its first anniversary with a social media campaign to show off the cute little pins that were sent to charter members. (See the impressively long list below!)

PACDA is going strong with 100% virtual programming as a result of adapting to COVID-19’s presence in Pennsylvania. We are aiming to support members in ways that will increase your ability to thrive and to support clients/students through these uncertain, trying times.

Learn more by following us on social media or by viewing the recent Meet the President virtual meeting. We hope you’ll stay engaged with us and we’re glad you’re along for the ride!

Kim Neubauer

President, PACDA


LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Bill to Strengthen Career Counseling in Middle and High Schools

The Counseling for Career Choice Act was introduced by U.S. Congressmen Jim Langevin (D-RI) and Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (R-PA), co-chairs of the Congressional Career and Technical Education (CTE) Caucus, on 11/14/20. This bipartisan legislation would provide federal funding for states to develop career counseling frameworks to better prepare middle and high school students for educational and career opportunities.
