Welcome to the NJCA (New Jersey Counseling Association) website. The NJCA is one of the largest American Counseling Association (ACA) branches on the East Coast with four active divisions, two interest groups, and ten committees serving over 1,000 members. NJCA is the “go to” organization in New Jersey for LPCs, LACs, counselor educators, counseling graduate students, and community agencies.
I am honored and humbled to serve as the new President of the New Jersey Counseling Association. On behalf of the new Executive Committee, I would like to thank all of you for giving us the opportunity to serve you and we request your support and active participation in the activities of NJCA. I am deeply grateful for all the past presidents of NJCA. I am very inspired by our immediate past president, Connie Ducaine, for her leadership and outstanding contributions to NJCA during her presidency, as well as the members of the Executive Committee and Board of 2016-2017. Their commitment and hard work has made it possible to set and strive for very lofty goals for 2017-2018.
I am really looking forward to working with 2017-2018 board members, executive committee, and NJCA's executive director, Nancy Benz. Our focus this year is to keep in touch with our members regularly and understand their expectations for NJCA. We are getting ready for the fall conference scheduled for November 3rd. The spring conference is scheduled for March 16th, 17th, & 18th of 2018.
NJCA will continue to be an organization our members can rely on and trust. I NEED your comments, suggestions and constructive feedback, as I learn the ropes and succeed in this challenging task.
I look forward to continuing this important work towards fulfilling the mission and vision of the New Jersey Counseling Association.
