Counselor Membership in ACA. ERIC Digest.
Richmond, Lee J.; Remley, Theodore P.
The professional society for counselors is the American Counseling Association (ACA). All individuals who offer or supervise professional counseling services or educate counselors should be ACA members. ACA provides members with access to new information through publications, professional conferences, and professional services. Membership in ACA allows counselors to continue their education and discharge their professional responsibilities. As a strong advocate for the counseling profession, ACA maintains an active government relations program at national, state, and local levels, educating legislators and governmental agency administrators regarding the positive contributions professional counselors make to society. Actions or policies that discriminate against counselors as a professional group are challenged and opportunities are sought to promote public recognition and support of counselors. (ABL)
