Career Development Association of New Zealand


Ezine Number 11

Number 11, Winter 2011

The Winter Ezine is all about the 'big picture' and the positioning of our profession for the future. Both the Editorial and the President's Report pick up on this theme and the opportunities to make our industry a dominant voice in New Zealand. Megan Smith covers a range of other topics as well, including the CDAA conference and membership.

In the feature article, key leaders, influencers and thinkers present their thoughts on career development, our professional role and the challenges/barriers we face to be a dominant voice in New Zealand. The writers are:

  • Phil O'Reilly: Chief Executive, Business NZ
  • Graeme Benny: Chief Executive, Careers New Zealand
  • Lester Oakes: President, International Association for Educational & Vocational Guidance (IAEVG); and Honorary Member, CDANZ
  • Karen Vaughan: Senior Researcher, New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER)
  • Maggie Hames: President, Career and Transition Educators Aotearoa New Zealand (CATE)
  • Dale Williams: Chair, Mayor’s Taskforce for Jobs; Mayor, Otorohanga District Council
  • Doug Gorman: General Manager of the Strategic Labour Market Policy Division in the Department of Labour's Policy and Research Group.
