president's message

Black lives matter. Over the past few weeks, we have been listening, learning, and acknowledging how much work there is to be done to dismantle systemic racism in the United States. The long history of discrimination and police brutality has taken a heavy toll on our Black community. We see the overwhelming grief, pain, and anger. NCCDA stands with NCDA against racism and for social justice.

Me, myself and I. Party of one for the Fayetteville area North Carolina Career Development Association (NCCDA) Morning Musings recently. Designed as an opportunity for career professionals to network, this was our first in-person Morning Musings since the Before Times and the first one in Fayetteville.

I was excited for the possibilities that come from expanding the NCCDA into Cumberland County. New connections, new ideas and possibly, new members of NCCDA. Alas, it wasn't meant to be... yet.
