The New Professional Award recognizes an individual in North Carolina who has made a significant contribution to career development and has been in the profession for 5 years or less. The recipient would be an individual who in their early years of practice has shown unusual skill and promise of outstanding future accomplishments and has demonstrated evidence of meritorious service to the career development profession and/or NCCDA.
The Roy N. Anderson Award recognizes an individual in North Carolina who has made an outstanding contribution to career development, both in the state and at the regional or national levels over an extended period of time.
