CLINICAL SUPERVISION TRAINING POSTPONED UNTIL FRIDAY 

Due to the weather, the CST for Thursday is cancelled but will take place Friday and Saturday.  Friday will be day 1 (8:30 am – 5:00 pm) and Saturday will be Day 2 (8:30 am – 5:00 pm).  We are looking at Saturday, March 28 for the makeup day (9:30 am – 3:30 pm) but need to confirm that date with the VT Richmond Center when they open.

Another option is, we are going to hold another 3 day CST in Richmond, on April 30, May 1 & May 2. You may transfer your registration to that training or we will give you a complete refund.  Please email vcaoffice@cox.net and let us know what your plans are.  Thank you.

VCA PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT EVENTS
VCA LEGISLATIVE DAY

Thank you for your participation in the Virginia Counselors Association Legislative Day on Monday, January 26, 2015, in Richmond.  There were 63+ participants this year that joined us in the General Assembly Building making a difference for counselors, students, and clients across the Commonwealth.  Our voice as a unified profession is heard when we come together through special initiatives such as VCA’s annual Legislative Day.

Many of you were able to meet with your legislators or their aides and discuss issues of importance to Virginia’s counselors, in addition to advocating for counselors and counseling in general.

We want to give special thanks to our VCA lobbyist, Becky Bowers-Lanier, becky@b2lconsulting.com, for providing background information, instructions and framing our advocacy efforts.

The Virginia Counselors Association (VCA) is dedicated to the goal of meeting the needs of all Virginia counselors in a variety of work settings. It is a dynamic and active organization that has been effective in responding to statewide issues and in providing opportunities for professional interaction at the state and local levels.  VCA’s Mission is to ensure that VCA members in all settings will provide best counseling practices that enhance human development and functioning throughout the life span and promote public confidence in the counseling profession.
