Our Story

The WCDA Southwest Chapter began in 2018 as a discussion among career development staff at Clark College (Vancouver, WA). The discussion centered around providing local access to training, collaboration, information sharing, networking, and to broaden the representation of the career and workforce development field within the WCDA.  The chapter is excited to build WCDA membership and professional development opportunities through engaging, relevant programming and events.
