Leadership Opportunities: Two Open Positions

The Career Development Networking Group (CDNG), formerly the Early Career Networking Group, provides a supportive network of peers, the necessary resources, and networking opportunities to promote successful career growth for rehabilitation researchers and clinicians. We work together to tackle many of the common career development challenges and foster the development and advancement of rehabilitation professionals at all career stages. We welcome your participation!

Two leadership positions are open in the Communications Task Force:

    The CDNG Communications Task Force publishes a newsletter twice per year featuring a variety of topics and resources related to career development for rehabilitation professionals.
