We are thrilled to announce the creation of the Florida Association for School Counselors (FASC), a new platform within FCA dedicated to advancing the profession of school counseling across our state. As advocates for the educational, career, personal development and mental health of students, we recognize the need for a specialized community that supports and empowers school counselors.
FASC has been granted probationary approval for a two-year period to establish itself as an invaluable resource for all school counselors in Florida. During this time, we will focus on building a vibrant community, offering relevant professional development, and advocating for the interests of school counselors.
Our goal is to provide you with a dedicated space for networking, collaboration, and sharing best practices. FASC will host workshops, webinars, and other activities tailored to the unique needs of school counselors, offering opportunities to enhance your skills, stay informed about industry trends, and connect with fellow professionals.
We invite you to join us on this exciting journey as we contribute to shaping the future of school counseling in Florida. Your involvement and insights are crucial to the success of FASC. We encourage you to become a founding member, contribute your expertise, and help us build a strong and vibrant community that elevates the role of professional school counselors across our state.
Subsequently, we have added FASC to our membership application. For those joining, they will have the opportunity to join. For our current members, if you wish to add this Division to your profile, please contact Vickie Leeming, FCA Office Manager, and she will send you the appropriate invoice to do so.
Together, we will create an association that supports your professional growth, amplifies your voice, and contributes to the positive impact you have on the students you serve. Thank you for your dedication to the field of school counseling. We look forward to welcoming you to the Florida Association for School Counselors and embarking on this exciting journey together.
