June Message from the President...


Yay! The summer season is finally here! For some of our members, this is a time to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the school year. For others, it is a time to take some much needed vacation time from work! I love the summer season as the trees and grass are finally a wonderful shade of green, flowers are in bloom, and it is time for some socializing around the fire pit!

SDCA is offering an exciting opportunity for those of you interested in leadership. The annual SDCA leadership retreat will be held June 21-22 in Madison SD. On Saturday, June 21st four leadership sessions to train our members on how to be leaders and move SDCA forward. Topics will include Fiscal Responsibility, Structure of SDCA and Committee Roles, Function of Chapters, and Putting on a Successful Training or Conference. All members are invited and encouraged to attend. The hours will be from 10am-3pm, with an hour for lunch-which will be provided by SDCA. If you have any questions, please email me at sdca.counseling@gmail.com

In addition, your 2014-2015 SDCA Board of Directors will be meeting to develop our strategic plan for the upcoming year. We are working on finding ways to provide more services to you, our members. We have sent out a survey monkey link to each of you and I would encourage you to participate in the quick, ten question survey, and provide us some feedback as to what you are looking for from SDCA.

Our website continues to be updated and looks fantastic. Thank you to those of you who emailed me photos from conference. Please stop by the website and take a look! Have a fantastic June!
