MAC Students to Present at All Ohio Counselors Conference

Congratulations are in order for the following MAC students as their presentation project on Adolescent Depression from the Spring 2010 Consultation class was accepted at the 2010 All Ohio Counselors Conference (AOCC)! The AOCC will be held November 4-5, 2010 at the Hilton at Easton Town Center in Columbus Ohio.

  • Kathy Failor
  • Terry Fraley
  • Erika Jay

If you will be at the conference, be sure to check out their presentation from 2:15-3:15 on Thursday. You can visit http://www.ohiocounseling.org/aocc.htm to obtain complete information by viewing the brochure and you can also see the information about their session written below.

The AOCC is a joint conference between the Ohio Counseling Association and the Ohio School Counselor's Association. I would highly encourage you to go to the conference if you have the time off from work to go. This is an important part of your professional identity no matter if this is your first or last semester in the program. The cost for one or both days for students is $65, but every year there are a few slots afforded to each university with a counseling program where students can serve as volunteer at the conference and in exchange get in free. The student volunteer program has not been announced yet, your full time faculty will e-mail you with details when student volunteer applications will be accepted. Car pool with your classmates..it's a really fun and exciting time.

Dr. Cruikshanks, Dr. Mahon, and Professor Burns are all presenting at this year's AOCC and you will definitely see even more faculty members at the conference.
