HISTORY

PACDA’s first President, Kim Neubauer, accepted the presidency of a Philadelphia-based group of career professionals in 2017. She led the effort to recruit a statewide Board to form a 501(c)3 non-profit and to qualify to become a State Division of the National Career Development Association (NCDA). PACDA was officially approved as a chartered state division at NCDA's Annual Meeting on June 28, 2019. Kim instituted monthly Committee Collaboration meetings early in 2020 to ensure collaboration and synergy among our Committee Chairs and committee member volunteers, and directed a shift to all virtual programs in spring of 2020. PACDA celebrated its first anniversary by winning NCDA’s Outstanding State Division Award in June 2020.

Under the leadership of our current President, Safiya Edwards, PACDA continues to fulfil its mission to serve the professional development needs of career development professionals in Pennsylvania. PACDA’s strategic focus in 2022 is on member value enhancement (membership growth, exceptional programming, and expanded resources). We remain committed to:

  • Diversity in membership/presenters along every dimension: geography, age, gender, orientation, ethnicity, religion, etc.
  • Delivering positive value to career practitioners throughout PA, border communities, and, for virtual offerings, nationwide.
  • Responding to constituent needs.

Thank you to PACDA Charter Members!

These colleagues joined PACDA between 6/28/19 and 12/31/20.
