The Florida Counseling Association's Government Relations Program educates and informs legislators and other decision makers on issues of concern to FCA. The program also keeps FCA members up to date on state legislative proposals that affect our profession. The Government Relations Program is involved in numerous activities. We need members throughout the state to dedicate time and effort to our profession. We will be working with legislators to introduce new legislation as well as to work to change existing legislation.
