TCA is a volunteer organization. We are driven by Professional Counselors - like YOU! Connect with other Professional Counselors - seasoned and new.
As part of TCA's process to implement practices, goals and efforts that are guided by its members, we have 9 committees that are open for TCA's members to serve. Each of the committees work throughout the year to hone the focus of TCA's effort to impact positive change and support of professional counselors. Each committee creates the opportunity to engage with your peers and to begin your journey into volunteer leadership. From our Educational Endowment Fund Committee that distributes professional development grants to counselors 3-times per year, to the Public Policy Committee that works with TCA's governing bodies to establish top legislative priorities effecting counselors in Texas. Becoming a committee member will enrich your volunteer experience.
Committee Applications are open from March to May.
TCA is one of the premier providers of in-person and online continuing education programs in the state of Texas. TCA holds provider numbers with TSBEPC, TSBMFT, TSBEC, NBCC, TSBSWE. All programs submitted to TCA for co-sponsorship of continuing education hours undergoes a rigorous vetting process to ensure quality and integrity of each program.
If you are a TCA member who is fully licensed or credentialed you can apply to become a program reviewer for the annual TCA conferences, Professional Growth Conference (PGC) or Professional School Counselor Conference (PSCC).
There are many ways to become involved with volunteering in TCA. If signing up to be a part of one of our annual committees seems daunting, we offer smaller volunteer options during our conference events. During each conference we offer the chance to volunteer at registration, on a number of specific conference committees, and as program facilitators. Additionally, graduate students that volunteer for a minimum of 3hrs can receive a $25 gift card to apply towards conference expenses. Becoming a conference volunteer gives you the chance to interact with TCA's officers, board of directors, senators, staff and many more!
You must be registered to attend a conference to volunteer.
