Statement from the ACCA Executive Council
Like many national organizations, ACCA has been wrestling with planning a conference in a state that has undesirable legislation toward marginalized groups of people, and while North Carolina has since repealed the legislation, there are some states that continue to ban travel to NC. Our Executive Council has had many discussions about this and decided to stay for one reason. In the ACA Code of Ethics counselors are called to advocate for and stand with our clients. Ultimately the ACCA Executive Council, with the support of ACA, decided to stand with our college counseling colleagues and the LGBTQI+ community in North Carolina. Our conference will feature education around these issues and support of marginalized communities.
The American College Counseling Association Annual Conference will be held in Charlotte, NC at the Charlotte Marriott City Center February 22-25, 2018. The ACCA Conference Committee is thrilled to have Mary and Donald Collins as keynote speakers at the 2018 conference! The conference will also offer a full line-up of pre-conference workshops, offering additional continuing education credits to attendees, these sessions will be at an additional cost.
The conference will offer a variety of diverse and timely session topics for you to attend.. Topics at this year's conference will include outreach, counseling interventions, threat assessment, multicultural counseling, administration, leadership, community colleges, and much more!
