From the President of CSJ…
We are still in need of social justice minded folks to run for office in CSJ. The requirement for the president elect position is that you have been a member of the board or chair of a major committee. The requirement for the retired/limited means position is that you be retired or of limited means.
Serving on the CSJ board has been one of the pleasures of my professional life. We are a collegial group of people, very supportive of each other and committed to social justice and social justice within the counseling profession.
Please consider joining us.
