QCA`s President`s Message

Dear QCA Members

I welcome you to a new year of the Quebec Counselling Association! We on the board are proud of our accomplishments of last year, and look forward to another year of serving the Anglophone community of counsellors in Quebec.

I am pleased to take on the role of President for 2016-2017 and commit myself to offering support and direction to the dedicated Board of Directors and their initiatives. This year we also welcome Tanya Rust as our Membership Director and Jenny Ann Phillips as our E-bulletin editor. Jenny Ann joins Christina Spinelli and Amber Regier as our new CCPA Student Representatives.

The QCA has been serving the needs of a vibrant community of counselling professionals since 1958. It is my hope that we on the board can continue that tradition of service while also focussing on growth, outreach and advocacy. We have ambitious plans for this coming year, and aim to build on the success of last year. Our two very successful professional development events were met with widespread approval, and we intend to offer you more such learning opportunities. We are also planning our Winter Social Event, as well as more informal 5 à 7 evenings. We will be a presence at the 2017 CCPA Conference in Newfoundland, and invite you to join us there.

You will be hearing from us throughout the year, so check your inbox and e-bulletin regularly. As always, I welcome your participation and comments in order to better meet your needs. Please feel free to contact me at qca.counselling@gmail.com.

On behalf of myself and the Board of Directors, I wish you all the best.


Rena Klisouris, M.A., c.o.
