NCDA has transitioned to a constituency model to better represent and serve the diverse needs of our members. These groupings are designed to help you in your networking, to facilitate greater connection with colleagues who may share similar interests and work settings, and to enhance communication between the membership and the NCDA Board.
In this section of the website, you will have the opportunity to hear from the trustee for the constituency group that most closely represents your work setting or interest affiliation. Similarly, when attending the NCDA Global Conference, you can meet with fellow participants in your constituency groups. This section may post results of these conference gatherings.
Combined with Private Practice and Business & Industry, this constituency has an Advisory Group.
The Alliance of Career Resource Professionals (ACRP— formerly ACSCI) developed this tool to help career development professionals compare career products and services before purchasing. This new tool's writable electronic format enables the user to compare products by applying ACRP standards constructs to key components of career information products and services. ACRP’s intent is to assist counselors, administrators and others tasked with comparing systems that are often complex and organized in different ways.
The 6th edition of this text, edited by Danica Hays & Chris Wood, maintains the key features of previous editions with reviews of instruments and chapters by leading experts in the field. The updated edition has over 70 reviews and now includes qualitative/alternative approaches to standardized assessments. Chapters cover topics such as multicultural considerations in career assessment, selecting a career assessment, and career assessment standards and competencies for practitioners. A useful matrix provides a useful cross-reference to search for instruments based on the purpose of the instruments and the population best to use it.
