You MUST pre-register for this program. Due to the high registration volume, we will not be able to accommodate walk-in registrations on the day of the event.

This summer NYSSCA is planning a full day training called CHAMP CAMP (Counselors Helping Achieve Mastery Program) to be held in four locations around New York State specifically designed to help school counselors implement the new regulation requirements.  We are planning 4 locations and dates:

Mercy College, Dobbs Ferry, July 24th

Glens Falls HS, Glens Falls, July 26th

This Site is at capacity, July 18, 2018 OCM BOCES, Liverpool, July 31st  

This Site is at capacity, July 20, 2018 Orchard Park HS, Orchard Park, August 2nd

The format will provide targeted training for both school counselors who are unfamiliar with the ASCA National Model as well as those who are already well-versed.  Likewise, the program will be relevant for districts who have already begun updating their program and for those who have not yet planned how to update. Cost for this program will be minimal:  $49 for NYSSCA members, $99 for non-members (includes NYSSCA membership) and includes lunch. The program will begin at 8:00 am and conclude by 4:00 pm.

Registration is open now.
