How To Form a State Division of ACCA:

Persons interested in forming a state division of ACCA should contact the State Divisions’ Liason,LynnDee Horne. The State Divisions’ Liason can provide details and resources to facilitate the division creation. In general, formation of a state division requires:

  1. A minimum of 15 charter members who belong to ACCA. Exceptions to the minimum number may be considered by the ACCA Executive Council.
  2. Elected officers (president, president-elect, secretary/treasurer required; others as needed). Officers of state ACCA divisions must be members of ACCA.
  3. By-laws. State division by-laws must be consistent with those of ACA and ACCA and should be presented to the ACCA Executive Council for approval.
  4. Each state division will be a division within the appropriate state branch of ACA. The recommendation of the state branch, if one exists, shall be required prior to the chartering of a state division of ACCA.

State Divisions

An important component of ACCA is its state divisions. An ACCA-chartered state college counseling division offers wonderful opportunities to network with colleagues, focus on concerns unique to local areas, pool resources for continuing education activities close to home, and support state laws pertaining to professional counselors.
