2013-2014 HRCA President’s Message
Welcome to the Hampton Roads Counselors Association (HRCA) website! We use this medium to inform our members on current and future events. We hope to expand its use in the future to become a resource for all members in their counseling work.
Our general membership meetings will be held in the evening hours (4:30 to 6:30 PM) to enable more of our school counselors to attend. We will be meeting at three of the college campuses around the southern Tidewater area: ODU (Oct 10th), Regent (Dec 12th), and Norfolk State (Apr 10th).
The general membership meetings offer you the opportunity to: engage in networking with other counseling colleagues, earn state license renewal points (2 per meeting), obtain professional development education, serve colleagues in various positions of leadership, and, participate in the largest counseling chapter in the Commonwealth.
We are also planning a time of fellowship and fun in February, during the National School Counselor's Week, on Feb 6th, 2014, at a place and time to be determined. Keep that time open for FREE food and fun!
As an HRCA member, you may: advocate for the counseling profession at local and state levels, receive HRCA e-blasts with current information of interest to the profession, stay in touch with the latest developments in the counseling field, serve others in the field, and, work together to provide solutions that will benefit all counselors...regardless of the counseling setting.
We are looking forward to a GREAT year...especially the VCA Convention being held at such an amazing location, The Homestead! There will also be a time to meet at the HRCA suite during the Convention. Come join us and make your voice heard!
