IAEVG レスター会長からのご挨拶

Dear Colleagues

I am delighted that the International Association for Educational and Vocational Guidance (IAEVG) has the opportunity to work closely with the Japanese Society for the Study of Career Education (JSSCE) to offer an international conference in Tsukuba in September 2015.  While the event will be very significant in its own right I also hope that it will be the start of a long and mutually beneficial relationship between IAEVG and JSSCE.


IAEVG was formed over 60 years ago in Paris and for many years was largely a European association whose membership slowly expanded to include North America.  Membership gradually extended to some South American countries.  For many years this limited geographical spread of member countries was reflected in board membership.


Over the last 15 years IAEVG has further expanded to become truly international, with members in 40 countries and covering all continents (except Antarctica!). In parallel, members of the board come from five continents.  In total, IAEVG represents the interests of nearly 19,000 members around the world.


While we may all be at different stages of development of career guidance in our respective countries our aims and commitment to ensuring services are provided to our citizens is universal.  By being part of a wider international community we create the opportunity to learn from others and for others to learn from us; to contribute to international debate through IAEVG conferences, webinars, its newsletter, journal and twitter.


I wish you all well in your current career guidance endeavours, whatever your field of interest or specialization may be. 


I hope that many of you will come to the Tsukuba conference.


I extend my best wishes to you all.


Lester Oakes
