CDAA’s vision is a career development profession recognised for excellence and valued by all Australians.
One significant way we recognise this work is through our Excellence Awards Program, which was launched in late 2012 as part of the Association's Framework for Excellence.
Designed to highlight outstanding achievements in the career development profession, the CDAA National Excellence Awards program consists of the seven awards:
|Leadership Pillar||Policy Pillar|
|Research Pillar||Practice Pillar|

The CDAA Excellence Awards are based on of the four categories of excellence:
For members of the CDAA, excellence is defined in these four categories. Two categories are “inward” focused; that is, the key beneficiaries of excellence in these two categories are the profession, and the CDAA itself. Two categories are “outward” focused; that is, the key beneficiaries of excellence in these two categories are our clients, constituents and stakeholders.
Each year the winners are announced at the Excellence Awards Dinner at the CDAA National Conference, receiving a number of award entitlements.
