In partnership with the University of Canterbury and the Tertiary Education Commission

This year, at our national conference for research and leading practice, we examine ourselves and put career practice in New Zealand under the microscope to examine:

What innovative models of career practice are working now at home, and abroad?
How will career practice need to change to address the diverse needs of clients in the new economy?
How can you adapt your practice to remain relevant, accessible and sustainable, and so that New Zealanders receive excellence in career development support?

CDANZ Annual General Meeting is a time for celebrating the achievements of the year and planning the year ahead.

The AGM takes place on the afternoon of day 1 of the CDANZ National Conference. Those attending the Conference and/or AGM are all welcome at the CDANZ Networking Drinks following the AGM.

You may also wish to come earlier than the AGM so that you can hear the CDANZ Project Updates. These updates are part of the National Conference programme immediately prior to the AGM. Any CDANZ Members who are not registered to attend the conference, but who would like to attend the project updates, are welcome to do so.

Please see the AGM page at for specific timing and agenda details.
