Presentations are the most familiar and frequent sessions. Lasting one hour, there are close to 90 choices starting Thursday afternoon and going through Saturday morning. A select few of these Presentations were chosen as Featured Sessions.
Roundtables are two 25-minute presentations. Attendees have the opportunity to have a more interactive session at one roundtable then choose a second roundtable after the first round is completed within the 60 minute Program Series time frame. Roundtables are offered at the same time as Presentation sessions.
Professional Development Institutes are additional in-depth learning experiences. These provide 4 additional continuing education contact hours. These are not included in the conference registration. They require an additional registration and fee and are only offered in two sessions on Wednesday.
First Timer's Session is for those attendees who have never been to an NCDA Global Career Development Conference. It is a great opportunity to meet others and learn how to maximize your conference experience. Presented by seasoned conference veterans!
The Welcome Reception is a time to gather together with old friends and new on the conference opening night. Light hors d'oeuvres will be served along with an available cash bar. Entrance is free to conference attendees (please wear your badge as identification). Guest tickets may be purchased.
Join friends and colleagues as we celebrate career development! Just like a Hollywood After Party, the night will include dancing, dessert, and a cash bar. Cocktail attire is suggested.
