Career Development Association of New Zealand


Ezine Number 6

Ezine Number 6, Autumn 2010

Christmas is in the rear vision mirror and now it's already March! The New Year is often a time to make some resolutions and take on on new responsibilities and considering what might be.

Professional Associations also go through similar processes. Megan's piece will inform you what is happening in CDANZ that is immediate for the Association. She also introduces the Executive members and outlines their responsibilities. There is also a new communications team who are finding their feet or putting their feet in it with the web and ezine development; they take the opportunity to introduce themselves and put out the call to other practitioners for their contributions.

There is also the opportunity for you the practitioner to find out about professional opportunities, including certification courses, research symposia, conferences and workshops.

Back issues of the old Career Practitioners Association NZ newsletter can be found by going to the publications pages in the members area. You will have to log in to access this area.

If you are not CDANZ member but are interested in becoming one, click on the Join CDANZ link to find out how. Click the Contact Us link for any further enquiries or information.
