The Missouri Career Development Association (MoCDA) and American Counseling Association of Missouri (ACAM) have teamed up to bring its members a joint 2019 Professional Development Conference.
This year’s conference will focus on the holistic approach to career development as counselors and career practitioners have the opportunity to engage in conversations that affect all types of clients/students. This partnership will provide participants the opportunity to learn and engage with counselors and career professionals from a variety of environments including higher education, K-12 schools, agencies, private practice, corporate, and government.
Conference Keynote Speaker: Dr. Hyung Joon Yoon, SPHR, Trustee-at-Large for the National Career Development Association Board of Directors.
Our Keynote Speaker is made possible through a National Career Development Association Grant that the Missouri Career Development Association has been awarded three years consecutively. MoCDA and ACAM are excited to hear from Dr. Hyung Joon Yoon as he provides insights into how to engage in hope-centered career development while engaging the whole person.
