GCDA Mini Conference Wrap Up

Thank you to all who participated in our second annual GCDA Mini Conference on March 10! We would also like to thank all of our wonderful speakers for sharing their knowledge and expertise with the attendees.

Dr. Debra Osborn and Dr. Melissa Venable presented our keynote on Technology in Career Development. They shared several new trends and developments in technology and how they could be used in career practice. Some of the items they shared included how to stay up to date on career development trends, social media, and a virtual reality mock interview platform!

Visit our event photos page to view pictures of the Min-Conference. Dick Knowdell has also shared his presentation with attendees -- if you attended the program and want a copy of the slides, please email the board.
