QCA President's Message

Dear QCA Members,

I welcome you to our new year at the Quebec Counselling Association. A lot of work and energy went into initiatives to move the QCA forward and promote you—the membership—in the last year. We have our new website and Facebook page (find us at http://www.quebeccounselling.ca or https://www.facebook.com/quebeccounselling).
 
Our membership survey clearly shows the desire of members to have access to discounted Professional Development opportunities and peer supervision. These are two initiatives we have started to organize. Stay tuned for more.
 
I am delighted to take on the role of President for 2014-15 and aim to offer support and direction to the dedicated Board of Directors in their challenge to grow with the changes and desires of the times. The Board’s dedication and efforts are what have kept the QCA going since 1958. I will continue the tradition, and I encourage you to work with me towards a year of growth and involvement. I welcome your participation and comments in order to better meet your needs. Please feel free to contact me at qca.counselling@gmail.com.
 
This year, I aim to build on the hard work of last year’s board and to make this year one in which you, dear member, are highlighted and feel supported. This year’s Board of Directors are abuzz with ideas and energy. We will work with the CCPA and other like-minded associations to bring you the best of PD workshops, information and networking opportunities. You will be hearing from us throughout the year – as we advocate for you and your needs – and we would love to hear from you.
 
On behalf of the new Board I wish you all the best for the continuation,
 
Sincerely,
 
Carrie Foster
M.A., CCC, RDT
President, Board of Directors QCA
