Career Development Association of NZ (CDANZ) and Careers NZ join forces to celebrate the inspiring and accomplished career of Dr Dale Furbish. This celebration acknowledges Dale's recent retirement from AUT following his long tenure as Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader for the Graduate Diploma in Career Development and the Master of Career Development.

Dale came to New Zealand in 1995. He was a Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader for the Graduate Diploma in Career Development and the Master of Career Development at AUT until his retirement in 2015.

Dale has over 25 years experience as a career counsellor, during which time he served as as a Director of Counselling at a tertiary institution in the United States. 

With an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Masters in Counselling, Dale earned his doctorate from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. 

His current research interests include professionalisation of career practice in New Zealand, international career transitions, and the influence of self-funded leave on career development. He is also involved in investigating trends-national standards for career practice competencies and their effect on local practice issues. 

Dale is an active member of CDANZ as serves as its President for two terms 1999-2003. 

In 2007 Dale was recognised by the National Career Development Association (NCDA) in the USA with the International Leadership Award, and CDANZ recognised his contribution to our Association by awarding him Life Membership in 2010.
