MCDA created the Career Café to encourage members to network more often throughout the year in a more informal setting than the annual conference and fall workshop and to provide opportunities to share ideas and knowledge.
We have coordinators from various regions in the state whose job is to encourage members to host a Career Café, to assist people in marketing, and to seek topics to discuss.
  • A career topic is chosen to discuss.
  • Typically about 1.5 TO 2 hours
  • Time for networking and time for focused discussion on the topic
  • Held most often at a member’s site but can be held anywhere
Augusta/Waterville:  Haley Brown & Diane Anderson
Greater Bangor area:  James Westhoff & Kate Axelsen Foster
Lewiston/Auburn: Amy Jaffe & Peter Osborne
Southern Maine: Adrian Cohen & Stacy Stewart
Almost 40 career development professionals joined a virtual MCDA Career Cafe on March 31, 2020 to talk about how we’re adjusting to remote work and how best to support our clients in these uncertain times. Shout-out to Stacy Stewart and Joe Austin for organizing and facilitating!
