The role of Chapters is to provide members with a forum to meet like-minded people and discuss the industry, professional, and other relevant issues. Chapters advise ACA of any particular issues that need addressing and provide ACA with a local base from which to approach local and state governments and organisations about professional issues.
All ACA Members are asked to consider joining their local Chapter, as they are an excellent networking venue. By joining and becoming proactive, attendees have the opportunity to network and engage with like-minded professionals while gaining insight into professional counselling.
Attendance at Chapter Meetings also attracts Ongoing Professional Development points. More information is available within the ACA OPD Policy. Chapters support and promote ACA in their geographic area and wherever possible promulgate information on behalf of their association and ACA.
Chapter Meetings are to address issues relevant to professional counselling only. They are not to be misused to promote political or commercial self-interest.
