Webinar Log-In Open 3:30 PM - 4:00 PM
To access the registration options for NCSCA members, please log into the website first.
Because the school year has been extended in many school districts, some NCSCA members have informed us that they are not able to attend Legislative Day this year on June 12. If you are unable to join us in Raleigh but can still help to advocate for school counselors and their students, we hope that you can participate in this webinar.
In this webinar, you will learn how to identify and contact your state senator and representative. Recommendations for writing effective letters or emails and making phone calls will be shared. We will discuss how to educate legislators about the importance of professional school counseling programs and inform them of key issues that are affecting school counselors and the students they serve.
