ACES would like to announce the 2017 Emerging Leaders Workshop to be held at the ACES conference in Chicago, Illinois on Wednesday, October 4, 2017 from 2 p. m. to 6 pm.

The Emerging Leaders workshop is designed to help students and new faculty members in their first to third years of employment discover how leadership can enhance their own professional development, to enhance the diversity of ACES, and to help engage talented and dedicated future leaders as we seek to Forge the Future of Professional Counseling.  A review panel will select attendees with a demonstrated commitment to the profession of Counselor Education and Supervision, leadership experience and potential, and participation in state, regional, and/or national ACES organizations and conferences. Emerging leaders that represent racial and ethnic diversity are particularly encouraged to apply.

To apply: Only self-nominations will be accepted. You can find the electronic application by clicking on this link:
