CCAA has held a special place in the lives of many counsellors over the years. The Association began in Victoria as the Christian Counsellors Association and over the years State Associations were developed. The desire to see a unified group helped to develop the umbrella association of CCAA and the National Council consisting of 2 elected members from the six State Associations. CCAA is a federation of 6 State Associations and therefore has 7 constitutions, 7 sets of accounts, 7 committees and sub committees including the Membership committees. Our committees have worked hard in their commitment to grow the Association which has attracted Christian counsellors around Australia.
After lengthy discussions, it has been agreed by the States to move to this new chapter in the life of CCAA. To restructure CCAA as a National body with State divisions will release the local committees to be more involved on the relational level with their members and the greater community. The administration function will be carried out by the National body, thus streamlining processes, especially Membership, to continue to move forward.
This exciting chapter ahead may produce fears as it will be new. Join us as Rob shares the vision how we as CCAA can move forward into the future within the Counselling Profession.
