The Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists (ACCT) is pleased to invite you to the 2016 Annual General Meeting and Conference, Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1, 2016, at the Executive Suites Hotel & Conference Centre Burnaby.

Focusing on the theme of ‘Nurturing Our Craft, Nurturing Ourselves,’ the two-day conference will include professional development sessions centering on skill building and self-care, and opportunities 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 they choose.

Early bird pricing is available through July 1, 2016. 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.
