INDIANA COUNSELING ASSOCIATION
The 2021 ICA Annual Conference is going virtual! May 31- June 4, 2021
After serious consideration and out of concern for our attendees and staff, we have decided to bring the ICA Annual Conference to YOU. While we will deeply miss gathering in-person, seeing our professional counselor family, and celebrating the counseling profession together in the same physical space -- we are working hard to make this virtual event the best it can be - including quality continuing education and networking opportunities.
The 2021 ICA Annual Conference with the theme Adapt & Overcome will provide several presentations on trauma, advocacy, professional identity, multicultural considerations, and more! You will learn about the resilience and flexibility of professional counselors and how we remain strong in community and collaboration.
