MCDA’s vision is that all career professionals provide the most effective and efficient services in an ethical manner.
The Maryland Career Development Association’s (MCDA) mission is to promote a forum where career professionals network and share resources to ensure the quality of career services to the standards of the National Career Development Association.
MCDA is a division of the Maryland Association for Counseling and Development (MACD) which in turn is a branch of the American Counseling Association (ACA). MCDA is a state division of the National Career Development Association (NCDA) which is in turn a division of ACA. When you join MCDA, you will be offered the option to become a member of MACD. While recommended, membership in NCDA and ACA is not required.
