What are ACA Chapters?

ACA Chapters are local meetings established by the ACA to provide members with valuable opportunities for professional development, supervision, networking, and support within their communities. Each Chapter serves as an opportunity for counsellors/counselling students to connect, learn, share knowledge, and enhance their skills in a supportive environment. 

The full 2024 Chapter Meeting Calendar can be viewed here.

Purpose of ACA Chapters

  1. Local Networking and Discussions: Chapters offer a space for members to meet, discuss industry topics, and share professional insights. Chapters allow members to build relationships with peers, supervisors, and industry experts.

2. Professional Development (PD): Access local PD sessions and develop your industry knowledge and skills. 

    • Chapter meetings accrue 3 OPD points, to claim OPD points for participating in a Chapter meeting, simply use your digital Trybooking ticket as evidence when uploading the session to your OPD Log on the ACA Membership Portal. For more information, watch this video guide. 
    • Convenors schedule and source speakers for PD sessions, aligning topics with industry standards. PD events occur during scheduled Chapter meetings, focusing on enhancing skills and knowledge.

3. Group Supervision: Some Chapters incorporate group supervision sessions, advancing your practice skills. Participate in group supervision sessions to receive constructive feedback and further your education.
