ACCA President Amy M. Lenhart, MA, LPC, NCC
Hello ACCA! Welcome to the American College Counseling Association webpage. We are a division of the American Counseling Association, focusing on professionals who work in community colleges, technical schools, and colleges and universities.
We are a volunteer organization made up of an executive council with professionals across the United States. We strive to promote counselors with continuing education opportunities, such as our ACCA Conferences, webinars, networking, research, and professional and personal development opportunities.
Now more than ever, we need your participation and voice to assist with the promotion of college counseling. I would also invite you to become active by advocating for college counseling on both the state and national level. There are several ways for you to be active in your state as well as the national level. Your voice is important in promoting the mental health, career development concerns, and overall wellbeing of our students. I welcome you to contact me to if you are interested in becoming more involved or if there is any way that I might be able to assist you.
I would invite you to come to our next ACCA Conference which will be October 1st through October 4th, 2015 in Louisville, KY! We are excited with so many great learning opportunities as well as a chance for you to meet with fellow college counselors!
