A Branch of the American Counseling Association

What does it mean to be a member of the MnCA


Levels of Membership and Rates for One Year Membership

As an MnCA member, you support the counseling profession as a whole, as well as consumers, patients, and clients in Minnesota by providing a consistent voice for legislation and public advocacy. Your active membership makes a difference!

When you become a member, you will receive: 

*Educational Opportunities: Advance notice and reduced prices on registration for MnCA sponsored events, meetings, workshops, seminars and our biggest event – the annual Fall Conference!

*Professional Identification: Let others know that you value the future of the counseling profession in MN by displaying your affiliation on  your resume or business card.

*Networking: Opportunities to meet and network with other counseling and mental health professionals, students, faculty, supervisors, and legislators; direct contact opportunities with public and private agencies interested in counseling and mental health—for the student practicum, employment, licensure and supervision; and membership to MnCA’s private Facebook page and Linked In profile.

*Information and Communication: Access to association business and information though the website, private Facebook page, Linked In profile, newsletters and email “blasts” that announce association events and activities, board news, job postings, legislative updates and other timely information about the profession. You will be in the loop for BBHT news and other changes to our profession locally and nationally.

*Legislative Advocacy: Your membership helps support a legislative lobbyist who acts on behalf of the professional counselor when there is legislation that affects our profession, our work, and our consumers. With active and ongoing legislative advocacy, MnCA helps ensure that LPC/LPCC licensure remains alive and thrives in the service of mental health.

*Professional Search Database: Coming soon! You can search and be found on the MnCA’s optional professional database for consumers, and other professionals. You can access other members contact information, specialties, supervision status, etc.

*Perks: Discounts on advertising with MnCA professional publications and web, and discounts on vendor rates at the Fall conference.

*Volunteer Opportunities:  Jump in! members can help with  just a one time event, or join a subcommittee or chair, or can serve the profession as a board member or officer. For more information about volunteer opportunities for the MnCA, email membershipmnca@gmail.com
