The Career Development Association of Alberta (CDAA) is proud to host the Alberta Career Development Conference - BTT and Beyond: Get Connected at the Best Western Port O'Call Hotel in Calgary, Alberta on May 30 and 31, 2014. This inaugural career development conference acknowledges the rich tradition and history of the Building Tomorrow Today (BTT) consultations of the past and their importance to Career Development Practitioners and the career development profession in Alberta. It is the culmination of support and assistance from various career development organizations and practitioners across the province.

The Alberta Career Development Conference will be keynoted by three internationally recognized and respected career development experts:

Dr. Mary McMahon teaches career development and guidance and counselling in the School of Education at The University of Queensland, Australia. She researches and publishes on the career development of children and adolescents, narrative career counselling and qualitative career assessment.

Welcome, Dr. Mary McMahon

Distinguished Professor Dr. Mark Watson is a professor at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, South Africa, an Honorary Professor at The University of Queensland, Australia, and a Research Associate at The University of Warwick, England. He specializes in career development and assessment across the lifespan in his research, writing, and lecturing. He has conducted workshops for the training and professional development of career practitioners in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Botswana.

 Welcome, Dr. Mark Watson

Professor Dr. Jenny Bimrose is Deputy Director of the Institute for Employment Research, University of Warwick, England. Previously, she was Head of Centre for Training in Careers Guidance at the University of East London where she managed a suite of post graduate training courses for career guidance professionals. With over thirty years of experience teaching, researching and managing in higher education, she has extensive experience of external project management and consultancy, both in the UK and Europe, including for the Council of Europe. Ongoing research interests include: supporting careers guidance practitioners in their use of labour market information in career guidance; the integration of information technologies into careers practice; the decision-making styles and career trajectories of individuals across Europe; the implications for career guidance of older women's career development; the role of career adaptability for mid-career changers and knowledge maturation in organizations.

Welcome, Dr. Jenny Bimrose


In addition to thought provoking keynote presentations delegates will have the opportunity to choose from 27 concurrent sessions; attend a delegate wide consultation session; participate in an Exhibitor Fair featuring round table presentations sessions with exhibitors and career development experts; attend the Career Development Association of Alberta Annual General Meeting; and get connected at networking and social events. What better way to connect with your profession and your colleagues. The Alberta Career Development Conference is an unique opportunity to strengthen and grow the career development profession in Alberta by bringing together individuals, organizations, service and training providers, policy makers and all career development stakeholders to reflect on, discuss, and influence best practices in career development; participate in and contribute to important dialogue about the direction and future of career development in Alberta and Canada; gain a more in depth understanding of the labour market and its influences on career development practice; enhance knowledge and understanding of career development issues and considerations; connect with committed and passionate professionals; establish relationships  and partnerships to enhance career development services; promote services and programs to colleagues; gather resources and information from exhibitors to enhance career development services; have FUN and invest in personal and professional development. The benefits of attending ACDC 2014 are priceless:

  • Stay current with career development locally, provincially, nationally and internationally
  • Connect / re-connect with career development practitioners, organizations, service and training providers, policy makers and all career development stakeholders
  • Commit to professional and personal development
