President's Welcome

tommy vaughn Welcome to the South Carolina Counseling Association! Whether you are a member checking in, trying to find out more information about SCCA, or just navigated your way to our page, we are extremely pleased that you have found SCCA.

As a branch of the American Counseling Association (ACA), we are the only professional association representing the breadth of counselors in the State of South Carolina. SCCA has a rich legacy and varied history in the State, and this year we hope to add another exciting chapter to our story. For the 2018-2019 year, our theme is—Counselors: Ambassadors of Health and Wholeness. No matter your bent as a counselor, our common call is to help better the lives of others and create wholesome environments where we find opportunities for influence. This challenge is at the heart of all we do as counselors.

I hope that you will join us this year in SCCA as we endeavor to show ourselves to be true ambassadors of renewal, healing, advocacy, and transformation. There is excitement in the air! Be a part of what SCCA is doing to carry out the high calling of our profession, not just in service to others and our various organizations, but to be shining examples of lives lived in health and wholeness as our personal goal!

In these pages, you will see the ongoing activities led by SCCA in South Carolina. Maybe you will find an employment connection, express interest in presenting your knowledge at a conference, find opportunities for professional development, or simply build a network of colleagues. We are glad you have found SCCA!
