Would you like to set yourself apart as a career services professional? Is there a topic that you are passionate about that you can share? Do you enjoy helping with the growth & development of your colleagues? If so, please consider this opportunity!

The Professional Development Committee is always looking for volunteers who would like to share their experience and expertise by recording webinars to provide CEUs for OCDA members. This is an easy process—it takes approximately an hour of your time to record, and the PD Committee will handle the setup process. Any topic that meets the guidelines for CEUs will be accepted; some possible topics include: self-care/self compassion in career counseling, working with clients who experience job loss, working with special populations (veterans, clients with autism, refugee/immigrant populations, LGBTQ clients, re-entry population), career assessments, ethical issues in career counseling, and motivational interviewing.

Please note: webinar volunteers will receive free registration for the 2018 OCDA Conference.
