As we have walked into the year 2022, or the year of Reiwa 4 in the Japanese calendar, I wish to express my heartfelt congratulations to all of you on the beginning of the new year. We are truly grateful for the enthusiastic support and cooperation generously extended by the members of JCDA during the last year and the year before that despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
I am Seth Hayden, the president of the National Career Development Association in the United States. Given the long history of cooperation between JCDA and NCDA, it is a privilege to share thoughts on the importance of professional involvement. Let me begin by congratulating the Japan Career Development Association on the recent celebration of its 20th anniversary.
