Graduate students are very much welcomed and encouraged to attend. NCDA Board members, committee chairpersons, state career development association leaders, and honored award winners are all an active part of our conference.
How do I access the virtual conference?
Registered participants can access all conference offerings through the virtual conference platform (available starting June 22). Please use the invitation email that you received on June 22nd (sent to the email you registered under -be sure to check your spam folders). The virtual conference platform will only be accessible to registered attendees. We suggest your first access occur well in advance of the live sessions. Future access after the first time uses a different link (as instructed in your email).
How long will I have access to the virtual conference platform?
Registered participants will have access to all sessions, including recordings of live presentations, until September 30, 2021. If you missed the deadline to register for the live conference, watch for an option to purchase access to the recordings.
How many Continuing Education Hours are given for attending the virtual conference?
The virtual conference offers 15 or 25 contact hours, depending upon the registration level you choose. The NCDA conference fully supports the NCDA Credentialing Commission's requirements for continuing education. NCDA is an NBCC-Approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEP) and may offer NBCC-approved clock hours for events that meet NBCC requirements. Sessions for which NBCC-approved clock hours will be awarded are identified in the app. The ACEP is solely responsible for all aspects of the program.
