‘Let's Get Practical’

“Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice.”…….Anton Chekhov

The Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists (ACCT) is pleased to invite you to the 2018 Annual General Meeting and Conference, Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13, 2018, at the Executive Suites Hotel & Conference Centre Burnaby.

Focusing on the theme of “Let’s Get Practical” the two-day conference will include professional development sessions centering on hands-on tools or guidance on all things practical to help ACCT counsellors grow themselves and their practice.  The conference also gives members an opportunity to meet and connect with fellow members.

We have arranged for special hotel rates for attendees, travel discounts for our members, and a variety of conference packages to give our members the ability to attend as much or as little as you choose.

Early bird pricing is available through July 31, 2018. We encourage you to reserve your space today and join us for two days of learning, exploration, camaraderie, and celebration, as we continue to grow cooperatively and support excellence in competency-based counselling. Information on professional development sessions and guest speakers will be announced shortly.
