September Message from the President...

Happy fall to all the counselors in South Dakota. I want to wish all the school counselors and Counselor Educators a very happy back to school. It is always great to get back into the in a routine, but also sad to see summer go. There are a lot of great things coming this fall. The School Counseling Association will sponsor another year of Counselor Connections, Interlakes Chapter is hosting a play therapy workshop, and the SDCA 2016 Conference Call for programs will be available soon. See the Save the date section of the newsletter for more information on these events!!

SDCA has invested in a new membership management service to help us better serve our members. This will provide us with on-line registration for the conference and other workshops. It also allows for professional members to renew on-line and updated your personal information. There is a glitch with the student memberships, whose profile the program won’t save. Don’t worry you can still renew on-line you just need to sign up as though you have never been a member before. If you haven’t renewed your SDCA membership for 2015 yet, you will want to do so fast. You won’t want to miss out on the great events coming this year!!

Now that the new membership management service is up and running, we will be working on getting our webinar program up and running. I hope that we will have an opportunity to offer some professional development over this service in the coming months. I will keep you posted on the webinar program and how it will be utilized to give you the most for your membership dues.

As always feel free to contact me at the e-mail below with your ideas, thoughts, or concerns. You make our organization amazing and SDCA is here to support you and our profession!
