    After withdrawing from Nashville due to the passage of Tennessee HB1840/SB1556, which is a discriminatory law that clearly targets the LGBTQ community, the American Counseling Association (ACA) has decided to relocate its 2017 Conference & Expo to San Francisco, CA.

    HB1840/SB1556 denies services to those most in need, targets the counseling profession, and is a violation of ACA’s Code of Ethics. In light of its passage, ACA members vocalized their opinions about the location of the conference, and after much discussion and consideration, it was determined that it would not be held in Tennessee.

    The ACA leadership team received 13 bids from cities across the country and determined that San Francisco was the best option. The 2017 Conference & Expo will take place March 16-19, 2017 at the Moscone West Convention Center. (Pre-conference Learning Institutes: March 15-16).

    “This is a historic time for ACA as we have never had to make a decision like this before. We believe that San Francisco will be an enjoyable and active city for our conference,” says Richard Yep, CEO of ACA. “This change signals that we are committed to serving our diverse members and helping them provide the support their clients need.”

    For more information, visit the ACA 2017 Conference & Expo website here.

    Summer rates have been extended through midnight ET on September 30, 2016.

    AMCD-CSJ DAY OF SERVICE 2016 CALL FOR COUNSELING PROFESSIONALS

    AMCD and CSJ are excited to announce the 2016 AMCD/CSJ Day of Service during the 2016 American Counseling Association (ACA) National Conference in Montreal, CA.  Presidents Dr. Catharina Chang (AMCD) and Dr. Rita Chi-Ying Chung (CSJ) have asked that we partner counseling professionals/leaders with emerging professionals/graduate students to use their skills in advocacy efforts to enhance professional development while in Montreal.  In this spirit, AMCD and CSJ are hoping to recruit 10-15 Counseling Professionals to participate in activities that promote professional identity and advocacy through mentorship and service.

    The theme of the 2016 Day of Service is “Heal Thyself,” and will be structured in alignment with the ACA Presidential Initiatives of Bullying and Interpersonal Violence and the role that counselors play in advocating for diverse populations.  The 2016 Day of Service will be held on Thursday, March 31, 2016.  Counseling professionals will be assigned a graduate student mentee for a term of one year. Counseling professionals will also support workshop development on various topics, including queer youth of color, African American women in the professoriate, and graduate student mentoring. Professional counseling volunteers should arrive in Montreal on Wednesday, March 30, 2016, for a Day of Service orientation meeting.  The purpose of the March 30th meeting will be to meet each other and finalize logistics for the Day of Service.  The March 30th event will be held from 5pm to 7pm.  More specifics will be provided at a later date.

    If you are a Counseling Professional (both professors and practitioners are welcome) who would like to volunteer, please send a 1-2 paragraph statement about your research interests, as well as ways you advocate for and within the counseling profession with a resume/vita to Kim Lee Hughes, Ph.D. (kimlee.hughes@utsa.edu) or Gloria Aquino Sosa (gas6@stmarys-ca.edu) by Friday, February 5, 2016.  If you know of someone that may be interested in this opportunity please share this call for volunteers.  

    Last year’s AMCD/CSJ Day of Service Projects were held in Orlando, FL.  The one-day service projects included:

    •    Facilitating in-service and training for parents at Grand Avenue Primary Learning Center
    •    Training for counselors and helping professionals at The Victim Service Center/ Orange County Child Advocacy Center
    •    Advocacy and training for Head Start Orlando / 4C-Florida

    On behalf of the 2016 AMCD/CSJ Central Planning Committee, we look forward to hearing from you.

    Kim Lee Hughes, Ph.D. – AMCD Day of Service Chair    

    Gloria Aquino Sosa, Ph.D. – CSJ President-Elect, CSJ Day of Service Chair
