Potential ICA Sponsor,

The need for quality education and mental health services in Idaho has never been more important than now!

·      Idaho ranks 48th  for education in the United States

·      Idaho ranks near the bottom in funding for mental health services

·      Idaho is identified as a state with limited service providers

·      Idaho ranks in the Top 10 for completed and attempted suicides- adolescents and veterans.

The Idaho Counseling Association represents Seven Divisions of Professional Counselors: Mental Health, School Counselors, Career Development, Marriage/Military/ Family, LGBTQ and Counselor Educators/Supervisors. We believe these statistics are changeable! We are asking you to partner with us in supporting Continued Education and Networking for those providing these key services for Idahoans. 

The ICA board realized that opportunities were being missed with our current schedule of Conferences. November 16-17, 2018, the Idaho Counseling Association (ICA) is partnering with the Idaho School Counseling Association (ISCA), and the other Six Divisions to bring a ‘Super’ Professional Counselor Conference to ALL Counselors in the state, knowing it takes ALL of us, working together for a better Idaho.

·      ICA has seen many changes and advancements in the mental health field in the 54 years of existence. 

·      ISCA has worked diligently with School Districts, Counselors, Administrators, and Idaho Legislators to support Counselors  spending 80% of their time with ALL Students to support Academics, Careers, and Social/Emotional skills

·      ICDA has worked timelessly with the Department of Labor to support Career/Tech Education and job education

·      ICA and its Divisions have spent the last decade conducting an annual conference to meet the needs of Counselors

·       ICA has now embarked on a new model for these annual trainings, holding conferences in Boise, ID and transitioning to one conference to share education, visibility, professional development and growth for counselors, their clients and constituents.

Our theme for this year conference is “Inspiring Perseverance Across the Journey.  Our Conference includes:

·      Nationally acclaimed keynote speaker

·      Four days of education

·      Two days (Nov. 16-17) scheduled 3 and 6 hour pertinent interest sessions with Key Note specialists

·      AND time allotted for Sponsorship interest and visitations

We look forward to your partnership to continue the visibility, professional development and growth of the counseling profession for Idahoans.

Sincerely,

Jordan Chesler, ISCA President-Elect

Sponsorship Chair
