“Many Counselors: 1 Profession” – Join us in Jefferson City for our Annual Conference

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.
