Dear Members & Friends,
You are in our thoughts. We're sending you well wishes during this scary time with Covid19. Change and disruption cannot be avoided right now. Our clients and those we serve may need more help. In accordance with our mission and in response to this crisis, MCDA hopes to provide you with helpful resources, professional development opportunities and a network of peers for sharing ideas and best practices. Announcements about events will be emailed and posted on our website. Please feel free to visit our website or reach out to me with any thoughts or questions.
Best Regards, Holly Smevog, President, Email Holly

The COVID-19 pandemic brings career, financial, medical, mental health, and logistical challenges for our clients. As independent practitioners, we can make a major, positive impact in others’ lives during this crisis by examining the sub-roles of a career development professional. These roles, or “HATS,” are Helper/Healer, Advisor, Teacher, and Strategist. Click on the title or below to read more.

In light of the Covid-19 quarantine and the fact that many association conferences have canceled or postponed, Peak-Careers is offering $40 off all spring online seminar offerings for MCDA members.

Go to Select an online seminar and register. Use PROMO CODE: MCDA and save $40

We are also taking registrations for the Facilitating Career Development (FCD) class. Next one begins April 10th and runs through August. This is a hybrid course with 5 “live” classes that will be available totally online using zoom. Fall offering begins October 23 and runs into March. “Live” classes will be in Portland area but also can be done completely online. More info click here.
Take care & Be Well! We are grateful to have you as part of our professional community!
