March 2021 Newsletter - PARTNERSHIPS NEWS
PACDA Association Partnerships are with organizations whose fields and learning opportunities overlap with career services and whose programming will be of interest to our members. By partnering, both of our organizations maximize resources, avoid duplication, amplify each other's efforts and increase event participation.
PACDA sees Partnerships as a benefit for our members! Many of our Partners offer a registration discount to PACDA members so your precious professional development dollars stretch further. Attending Partner events results in expanding your network beyond PACDA.
We have partnerships with neighboring state NCDA State Divisions and groups with a focus on career services, learning and development, talent development, personality type and book authors. Check out Partnerships under the “About Us” tab on the PACDA website. Information is posted there about our existing Partners and upcoming events. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or suggestions for a Partner organization.
See below for two upcoming professional development opportunities.

Asia Pacific Career Development Conference
Walking on Uncharted Career Paths
May 19-29, 2021
Are you looking for an international experience but not ready to book a flight? Attend the virtual Walking on Uncharted Career Paths conference from the Asia Pacific Career Development Association.
Keynotes and Professional Development Institutes by prominent career professionals, breakout sessions facilitated by career experts, social events, tours and connections with about 200 practitioners from a wide variety of Asian countries await you! Find out what’s happening with career planning on the other side of the world! This is a great opportunity to meet colleagues who face similar issues from a slightly different cultural perspective. Plenty of CE Hours and lots of social and cultural opportunities are included in low registration fees.
Due to the time difference between Singapore and EST, attending the conference live 10 pm – 2 am will work best for night owls, but no jet lag necessary. All sessions will be recorded for registrants.
