The National Career Pathways Network's 2016 Annual Conference focuses on Building Your Career Pathways SYSTEM!
The conference will be held in the JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Indianapolis. The main conference will take place Thursday and Friday, October 6–7.
Most of us work from a specific subset of a Career Pathways system … either an entrance point (Adult Career Pathways vs traditional high school students transitioning to postsecondary education/training) or perhaps a component (career counseling versus teaching in the classroom). This year’s conference theme—Building Your Career Pathways SYSTEM—focuses on recognizing and understanding all the parts that form the complex system for Career Pathways.
The conference will be held in the JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Indianapolis. All sessions will be held in the hotel. The main conference will take place Thursday and Friday, October 6–7.
The main conference sessions will be based on the OCTAE Ten Components and DOLETA Six Key Elements. Preconference workshops (Wednesday, October 5) will address topics such as Career Pathways Leadership Certification, WIOA Guidance and Guidelines, Employer-Education Partnerships, and Adult Career Pathways.The conference will focus on Career Pathways implementation at the state and local levels.
The conference’s 1200+ attendees will consist of a broad cross-section of stakeholders comprising secondary and postsecondary educators, workforce development professionals, and employers.The NCPN conference is one of the best professional development opportunities in the country, offering 130+ breakouts, a variety of preconference workshops, keynote speakers, networking opportunities, and an exhibit hall showcasing the latest products and services.
