The CACEE Board of Directors invites you to join us on Tuesday, June 9-Friday June 12 for the Annual General Meeting & Virtual Symposium.  We are looking forward to conducting CACEE business and seeing your face at this virtual event. We kindly ask that you register so we can confirm our numbers for this important event.

While it is in the interest of public safety for us to remain physically apart, there is power in connection and community.  This Symposium is an opportunity for 100+ CACEE professionals (career educators, campus recruiters, career centre leaders, partners, student affairs professionals and HR leaders) to gather virtually to:

  • Engage in development and benefit from the voice of experience of influencers in our space
  • Exchange ideas, support one another, and share best practices
  • Celebrate excellence, contribution, and innovation through our awards series
  • Network with colleagues from across Canada
  • Usher in the next year for CACEE as an association and connect with the National Board of Directors at the Annual General Meeting

The Symposium will offer micro-sessions that will be a catalyst for strategies, working alliances, and meaningful approaches to programming to support students in making the transition from post-secondary to career.  Through our work in our respective disciplines, we empower career building for life.  And, we truly are better together.

The Virtual Symposium is not a replacement for the National Conference. More information to follow.


The Symposium is FREE and open to all professionals in the post-secondary to career transition space. So, feel free to extend the invite to your colleagues, partners and friends. 

*NOTE* You’ve asked for flexibility… we’ve delivered!  You can register for the full symposium or just the sessions that fit your schedule.  We know that it is a full and busy time… but, we hope that with this flexibility and compact sessions that you are able to join us.
