QCA President's Message
Dear QCA Members,
It is with pleasure and anticipation that I begin the work as President for 2013-2014. As a longstanding member of the QCA, first as a student member, then as Secretary and last year as its Vice-President, I can attest to the commitment and dedication of the association's volunteer Board of Directors. This year we will be setting our sights on re-evaluating the needs of our membership: what works for you, what doesn't and where we can do better.
As well, we hope to continue our initial work with outreach projects, building links with other associations and professional development service providers in the counselling and psychotherapy field to in order to address issues pertaining to the evoluing counselling/psychotherapy environment for professionals here in Quebec.
Some other initiatives we will be addressing this year include:
setting up a mentorship program for new graduates;
exploring social media tools as a way of disseminating information to our members;
providing members with information related to professional accrediation (i.e., service providers for professionals preparing for the Office Québecois de la Langue Française (OQLF) exam, assistance with the Ordre des psychologues du Québec (OPQ) Psychotherapy Permit application process); and
advocating for members in parternship with other organizations on matters of importance to our members (i.e., third-party billing).
We welcome members' feedback, opinions and ideas, and I personally invite you to become active in your association. We look forward to an inspired and vigorous 2013-2014!
