MACCA Upcoming Events
MACCA is proud to offer quality professional development events throughout the year. Many of our MACCA events in 2023 will remain virtual as this continues to be an easier option for members. However, we are hoping to be able to meet in person more often in the coming years.
See below for details on each of our upcoming events. Our MACCA Meet-Ups are open to everyone. You must be a member to attend the Each of Us An Expert sessions. Guests will be admitted to one event only, after that membership will be required.
These sessions are scheduled every other month.
When: Friday, June 16th at 1:00 pm
Where: Zoom Meeting
Topic: Tenderhearted Career Solutions for Transgender & Transitioning Clients
Presenter: Ebony C. Peace
No federal law consistently protects transgender people from discrimination. They continue to lose their jobs over issues unrelated to performance and experience undue hardship and stress while job searching. With many employment challenges, a transgender person may seek your help in reaching their career goals while simultaneously coping with the emotional and physical challenges of gender dissidence. In this session, you will learn the employment landscape for transgender and transitioning clients and strengthen your competency in supporting this diverse population with compassion and grace.
Dates and topics for remaining 2023 sessions are as follows:
Monday, August 14th at 4:00pm and Thursday, October 26th at 12:00pm
NOTE: Only MACCA members will continue to have access to our Expert Series in 2023 as a member benefit. Non-members will be able to join for a small fee.
These sessions are generally scheduled the first Monday of every month.
