WHAT IS acdc?

The Career Development Association of Alberta’s Alberta Career Development Conference (ACDC) has been touted by delegates as one of the best career development conferences they have ever attended and by all reports, it just keeps getting better year after year! This two-day professional development and networking extravaganza is a “must attend” professional development event for anyone working or studying in career development or a related profession. Members and non-members alike are welcome to register and attend. Trade booths are available for interested vendors at our conference expo. The Association's Annual General Meeting also takes place in conjunction with the conference.
