CONVENTION GRADUATE STUDENT VOLUNTEER GENERAL INFORMATION
Attention Graduate Students,
Are you thinking about attending the upcoming FCA convention this fall? Would you like get involved? Would you like to meet new people? Would you like to network with other graduate students, professionals and leaders in the counseling field? Would you like to be a part of an AMAZING convention?
If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, then the graduate student volunteer program (GSVP) may be for you!
The 2019 FCA convention theme is “Destination – Self-Care! Awareness and Challenges: Strategies and Solution” and will be held in Tampa FL October 3-5th. What better way to serve than be a graduate student volunteer.
*All interested graduate students, please follow these steps:
Step 1: check your graduate student member status (you must be an active graduate student in order to qualify to be a volunteer).
Step 2: complete the Graduate Student Volunteer Application Form. This is your application to be considered for the GSVP. (This is not a guarantee for approval – please wait to get the acceptance letter BEFORE registering for the convention). The tentative deadline is July 25th to complete the volunteer application due to a limited number of spots remaining!
Step 3: all applications will be reviewed and an acceptance letter will be sent out with a volunteer promo code to use for registration. The code will be good through end of the early bird registration rate to ensure that each graduate student volunteer gets the best discount. Refunds for the cost of registration will be given after the conference event and will be based on the early bird registration rate (i.e., full time volunteers will be refunded 100% of the early bird registration rate and part time volunteers will be reimbursed 50% of the early bird registration rate).
Step 4: make sure to go online and book your convention hotel room in time to get the discounted rate! You can find all the information on the FCA website flacounseling.org.
Interested graduate students please go to fcacounseling.org and click on the Convention & Events tab. Hover over the 2019 Convention tab and click on Volunteer Program tab. There you will find information on what the graduate student volunteer program and FAQ about the volunteer program.
