Member Benefits

Professional Development

GSCA’s Annual Conference is a time to stretch your thinking, enhance your skills, explore new program ideas, expand your professional network and find new ways to work smarter not harder. Conference fees are discounted for all members who attend. You can also see other professional development opportunities by viewing our annual calendar.

Scholarship Opportunities

Each year GSCA offers $1,000 scholarships to deserving students, such as the Legacy and Emeliza Swain scholarships. 


  • The Counselor Connection e-Newsletter is printed monthly and keeps members on top of new projects, resources and member benefits.
  • ASCA’s School Counselor Magazine is offered virtually to GSCA members three times per year and highlights practical, how-to articles addressing the issues school counselors face on a daily basis.
  • The Beacon, our official organization newsletter that is printed twice per year, serves as an asset of best practices for school counselors and provides a place to turn for practical, how-to articles addressing the issues school counselors face on a daily basis.
  • The GSCA Journal provides peer-reviewed articles on school counseling theory, research, practice and techniques. The Journal helps you stay on top of the latest theories and advances in the field.


GSCA is committed to constant advocacy for our profession and the lives of the students we serve. Through the recent addition of a lobbyist, we believe we can fairly voice our members’ beliefs as well as keep members informed on the important decisions they can be a part of.
