Advocate & Organize. Build & Learn. Collaborate & Lead.

Are you an ACA leader? Are you interested in becoming an ACA leader? 

For the first time, there are spots available at ILT for ACA members who are not current or incoming leaders!

The 10th annual Institute for Leadership Training (ILT) presented by the American Counseling Association offers a variety of sessions that will help you learn about effective leadership, association management and the advocacy skills needed to work with elected officials in Washington, D.C., and in your home state.

This three-day workshop, held in Alexandria, Va., will help you strengthen the effectiveness of your division, region, branch or committee by applying best practices in governance, management, finance and government relations.

At ILT, you will develop the leadership skills to bring back to your professional counseling practice and to your role within the ACA. In addition, you can learn more about ACA’s goals and plans as you meet, and network with, members of the ACA Governing Council.

Professional advocacy is a key component of the work of all ACA members. The 2018 Institute for Leadership Training will help current and emerging leaders to find the best ways to advocate effectively for the counseling profession. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how ACA can support you in advocating for the counseling profession!
