Effective Advocacy

Effective advocacy for our profession and our role may not come easy for some. Advocacy comes in many forms. One may write a letter to a legislator, while someone else may want to tell a story face to face in the legislative building. We hope that you might find your own comfort level.  We hope that you find the following resources helpful as you advocate for the school counseling profession and our students.

2017 Legislative Day Booklet.pdf  Members who attend our annual Legislative Day receive this booklet, which includes NCSCA's Legislative Agenda, information about the NC General Assembly, and documents that describe the importance of school counselors.

Do you know who represents you in the North Carolina General Assembly?  You can visit to identify your senator and representative plus their contact information.

For more information about working with elected officials, you can download our PowerPoint presentation on

"Practicing Legislative Advocacy as a School Counselor".

NCSCA is a state division of the American School Counselor Association.
