Registration is now open for ACAM’s Annual Conference! We have more planned this year than ever before. Not only will you be able to get a year’s worth of CEUs (up to 20), browse exhibitors, network with colleagues, enjoy an included lunch each day but also kick back with an 80′s party complete with costumes, a DJ, and a cash bar. Presentations will be available again for purchase on audio CDs. We will also be electing a new President Elect position during the business meeting on Friday. Please consider if this is a position for you!
The conference will be located at the Capital Plaza Hotel in Jefferson City, MO Thursday, April 12th through Saturday, April 14th. And, we will wrap up by 1 pm on Saturday to make traveling home easier. As usual, we offer extremely competative rates. ACAM Members pay just $170 for our early bird discount which is available until February 18th. The rate for student members is only $60 for all 3 days. Click here to register.
“Many Counselors: 1 Profession” is this year’s theme. We are many counselors united by one profession and we are excited to provide what we feel is a unifying and welcoming atmosphere to all our counselors. For example, the ACAM ACAdemy and ACAM-KC will host a special presentation for students and recent graduates and our President will provide a key note lunch presentation about ACAM, our purpose, structure, divisions, future and how to get the most out of your membership.
