CDAA 20th Anniversary Gala: Back to the Future


Celebrating 20 Years of Career Development Excellence (1997-2017)

In honour of this milestone event, the CDAA is hosting a 20th Anniversary Gala in conjunction with the Alberta Career Development Conference (ACDC) at Fantasyland Hotel, West Edmonton Mall, Edmonton, AB on Wednesday, May 3, 2017.

The evening will begin with cocktails and networking starting at 4:00pm followed by a gourmet plated dinner and gala program starting at 6:00pm. Stories and photos will have you reminiscing about people you may have volunteered or worked with, events you may have attended, and the evolution of career development in Alberta. Re-connect with colleagues and friends, share your favourite stories and memories, and envision your hopes for the future of career development. Everyone is welcome!

Bare ‘n Von Hair (Canadian musicians Matt Day on piano and Gord Graber on drums) will wrap up the evening with clean, classy, and musical humour customized to CDAA. Expect song parodies, videos, pictures, skits, games and audience participation!
