The CCIA draws its 250 members from several sectors: education, government, social and community services, libraries and private practice. The primary goal of these career practitioners is to develop and share current career information. To this end, four professional development meetings are held each year; three issues of the CCIA newsletter, Career INFOcus, are published for members; various CCIA members facilitate workshops at national and regional conferences; and the CCIA Listserv allows on-going discussion of career issues among members.

CCIA is a member of the Contact Point community. CCIA membership information can be accessed through the CCIA site at and the Contact Point members’ link at
