A Note from the President


Greetings, dear friend and thank you for vising our website of the European Branch of the American Counseling Association (EB-ACA). As President of EB-ACA for the 2020-2021 year, I am so honored to serve this prestigious organization particularly in light of all the world events unfolding before us. For me, we have an extraordinary opportunity to make a difference in our world in spite of the challenges wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic.


A primary goal of EB-ACA is to provide continuing education and resources for counseling professionals in Europe. And we are doing that by hosting our first ever virtual conference and filling the next year’s calendar with virtual opportunities for continuing education. Our commitment continues to focus on fostering relationships between counselors based in Europe and the United States, as well as with mental health professionals across the globe.


I hope you will strongly consider being involved in EB-ACA by becoming a member, attending or presenting at our continuing education events, or serving on a committee. Please browse our website to learn more about EB-ACA, upcoming events, and membership information, and follow us on social media for updates. We hope to hear from you or to meet you at a future EB-ACA event in person or virtually!
