Welcome to the newsletter of the National Career Pathways Network.
Volume 27, No. 4: Pathways to Success in School and Careers
Greetings, friends and colleagues:
I am pleased to offer yet another highly informative issue of NCPN Connections. Many thanks to our authors, not only for supporting NCPN through their newsletter articles, but for the excellent work they are doing on the ground. Their commitment of time and effort is paying off, as many students, educators, and employers in their communities can attest.
The 2017 conference in St. Louis is right around the corner. In addition to the main conference on Thursday and Friday, October 26 and 27, this year the event will offer an unusually full slate of preconference workshops and tours on Wednesday, October 25:

The preconference events require additional registration and fees, but they are well worth the time and expense. Make plans now to take advantage of these high-quality professional development opportunities.
It's going to be a great conference. I look forward to seeing you there!
