Join your Colorado career development colleagues at the 11th Annual Best Practices in Career Development Conference. The conference will be held November 2, 2012 at the Plaza Hotel in Longmont, Colorado.

The fall conference is designed for CCDA members and affiliates to share ideas and knowledge while providing a professional development and networking opportunity.

We will have President of NCDA, Rich Feller as our opening Keynote and Daniel Seddiqui, author of "50 Jobs in 50 States." He will share his story of how, as a recent college graduate he turned a failed job search into an opportunity. He decided to spend fifty weeks, working fifty different jobs (paid or unpaid), one in each state, in the industry most commonly associated with each.

This year, the focus will be best practices around using assessments to guide clients into a new career including:
