Aloha CSJ and ACA members,
As your CSJ Governing Council Representative I am very aware of the significant role that our elected officials play in the future of ACA as well as the counseling profession. With this in mind, I am hopeful that our 500 and some CSJ members will take the opportunity to vote and put social justice issues at the forefront of our profession through our elected officials.
The ACA 2017 elections is open and the deadline to vote is Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
New leadership means new ideas, new areas of focus on, and the potential for change! The ACA leadership can have a direct impact on where the counseling profession is heading. We strongly encourage all members to vote in this year’s elections. Make sure your voice is heard!
All ACA members will be able to vote for the ACA President-Elect. ACA Student members will be able to vote for the ACA Governing Counsel Student Representative. Both the student and the president play a key role on the Governing Council. So please be sure to vote.
You will be able to read biographical information for the candidates through the ACA site or the email sent directly to you from ACA.
IMPORTANT: Only members in good standing as of Nov. 1, 2016 will be eligible to vote for the ACA President-elect and various division and region positions.
