2021 ICA Annual Conference

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. 

We are looking at providing blocks of virtual presentations throughout the week that you can coordinate with your schedule. We will be recording these sessions as well if you are unable to view a session at the scheduled time. We will announce the conference itinerary as soon as we have that information available. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Earn CEs! Programs will be live during the conference, but will also be available to earn continuing education until July 1, 2021!

  • Virtual Awards Reception where will be announce the 2020 Award Recipients.

  • Virtual Graduate Student Presentations for Master's and Doctoral counseling graduate students can present their research and dissertation proposals.

  • Refresh your practice with our exciting keynote speaker, Dr. Heather Trepal, ACA Past President!

  • Opportunities to network in group settings, one-on-one, and in public chat forums! Connect with professional counselors from a variety of backgrounds and locations.
