Outstanding State CDA Award

The awards acknowledge accomplishments in two division categories:

  1. an emerging CDA (charter of less than five years) 
  2. an established CDA (charter of five years or greater)

State divisions are recognized each year for their unique contribution, exemplary activities and significant progress as an association. Criteria to be considered may include:

  • National Career Development Month Activities
  • Workshops and Conferences
  • Publications/Newsletters
  • Government Relations/Public Policy Efforts
  • Membership Development and Recognition
  • Public Relations
  • Publications/Newsletters/Website
  • Service to the Community
  • Other Services to Members

It is not necessary to have activities in all suggested areas. Quality, not quantity, of activities will be recognized. Therefore, small state groups have as much opportunity to receive earned recognition as groups with larger numbers or resources. State CDAs may self-nominate.

The CDA Awards Committee will use the stated criteria to select the recipients of the awards. The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 10th, 2023 by 11:59pm Eastern Time. No late nominations will be accepted. The awardees will be notified in March, 2023 and will be recognized at the 2023 NCDA Global Career Development Conference, June 29-July 1, in Chicago, IL.

Good luck to all CDAs! We hope to see you at the annual NCDA Global Career Development Conference in Chicago this summer.
