Here is what some of our outgoing board members had to share about their experience:

  Kate Axelsen-Foster
  University of Maine Career Center
Being on the MCDA board provided me
   opportunities to get to know people                           in areas  of career development beyond                     higher education, and beyond the                               UMaine campus.

   It is so important to have relationships with one another, and grow a referral network. I enjoyed collaborating with others on programming and learning about what is going on in career development around our great state of Maine."

  Robin Tardiff
  Beal College
  "The MCDA Board is a great group of                         people who are very passionate about the               work we do. If I had time and ability I would           do it again. It was good to be a part of a                 group that has a common goal  and works             it forward together."

  Hope Lanza
  Port Resources
   "I loved the networking aspect of MCDA.
 a Board we did a lot. When I needed
 help, I reached out to my fellow
 members and all were responsive,
 willing and helpful."
