Building Bridges: Creating Communities Today for Tomorrow

The California Counseling Association (CCA) is a professional association incorporated in 1967 as a state branch of the American Counseling Association (ACA). We serve our members to advance counseling and professional development in the broad areas of mental health, career, and education.

CCA acts as the umbrella organization for a variety of divisions and interest groups within the profession. Our program is carried out at the local level to respond to local needs and situations. We support our members as leaders and innovators in counseling in partnership with schools, government agencies, private and pastoral practice, business, and industry.

Join us for this very exciting conference and a two days of programs for professionals in Schools, Universities, Career Development, Private Practice, Admissions, EOP, Education, and more! Take advantage of Continuing Education Units and expandyour professional network.
