The Indiana Counseling Association is committed to enhancing the counseling profession and the professional counselors who serve others. The Indiana Counseling Association is dedicated to advocating the counseling profession and empowering individuals, families, and communities, including providing ethical, diverse, and culturally-sensitive practices and appropriate treatment.


The Indiana Counseling Association was founded in December 1960 by the initiative of a Faculty Member of Notre Dame University. Its name, at the time, was related to "personnel & human resources." However, seven years later (in February 1967) ICA was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in Indiana and in 1970 it was granted the tax-exempt status (501, c, 3 status) by the Internal Revenue Service.

ICA’s overall operations and affairs are governed by the Board of Directors and various Standing Committees, an all-volunteer team of counselors from throughout the state. We'd love to have you. Why not volunteer to lend your talent, your knowledge, your invaluable experience, and your enthusiasm?

It won’t interfere

The Association is fully aware that you have a “day job,” so you will not be asked to sacrifice your attention to your daily work. As current and past volunteers will tell you, when lots of people each do a little, no one has to do a lot.

You could

  • Serve on the Board
  • Serve on a Committee
  • Make a presentation for a webinar or at the annual conference
  • Recruit your colleagues to join

    Apply to be on the Board of Directors for the 2021-2022 Cycle
