Do you have innovative ideas and strategies to share with your fellow counselors throughout the state? Why not present a program at the 2024 Annual Conference in Savannah, November 6th-8th.  Submit a program proposal today!

This year’s theme is “Counseling that Matters!” Everything you do from teaching classroom & small group lessons, working with individuals, and coordinating programs…MATTERS!  Do you have a fun & engaging lesson that left your students excited, that you could share? What about some specific strategies you use to motivate your students or get them talking? Do you have a program that supports mental health awareness or college and career readiness? Or what about social emotional learning professional development for your staff. It ALL MATTERS! Time alloted for presentations and Q&A is 1 hour. 

In addition, we are also welcoming school administrators to attend our conference this year so they can learn more about the potential contributions and impact of school counselors in their buildings.  Please consider proposing workshops for this targeted audience.
