On Nov. 15, AFSP-Alabama's Lisa Dunn, Cindy Wiley, and Mary Bartlett presented about suicide prevention and AFSP at the Alabama Counseling Association in Montgomery.
Founded in 1966, the Alabama Counseling Association (ALCA) is an organization of counseling professionals who work in education, health care, residential, private practice, community agencies, government and business/industry settings. Serving as a dynamic network of professional counselors in the State of Alabama, ALCA is devoted to professional development and maintenance of high standards for those involved in the counseling profession.
Through leadership training, continuing education opportunities, and advocacy services to more than 2000 members, ALCA provides counseling professionals opportunities to develop their skills and expand their knowledge base. ALCA has been instrumental in setting professional and ethical standards for the counseling profession. The association has made considerable strides in accreditation, licensure, and national certification. It also represents the interests of the profession before congress and federal agencies.
The group will be the first of many conventions that will be offered the Capital Cool discount card commissioned by the Montgomery Convention & Visitor Bureau to entice the attendees to get out and explore all the great dining options, attractions and shopping venues that the Capital City has to offer.
