This is the Pennsylvania Counseling Association's Administrative Information page. It is designed to be the one page that association officials can turn to for everything they need to serve in their capacity as a PCA Executive Council member, committee chair or member, or other official.

The PCA Supervision Registry is a free service that provides information about supervision opportunities to all PCA members. The Registry is a posting on the PCA website which lists information for counselors offering supervision services. The Registry will provide a central location where Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC) (and other qualified licensed mental health professionals) wishing to provide supervision to counselors-in-training seeking the LPC can post their contact information. It will also serve as a resource for those counselors-in-training seeking LPC supervision to locate potential supervisors in their area. The registry is an Internet Only Service – it will not be available through the PCA office phone lines or by mail. This service will be free.
Please Note: PCA does not independently verify, and makes no representation concerning, the capability, training, or credentials of individuals whose names appear on this list. PCA assumes no responsibility or liability whatsoever to supervisees or any other persons concerning the qualifications or competency of those listed. All questions concerning supervisor qualifications and competency should be directed to the State Board of Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists and Professional Counselors at http://www.dos.state.pa.us/bpoa/cwp/view.asp?a=1104&q=433177. Questions regarding Non LPC supervisors will need to be directed to the individual supervisor's respective state licensing board.
Please click the link below to connect to the PCA Supervision Registration Form. Complete the interactive form and click 'submit.' Once the form is submitted, the information will be checked for completeness by a Supervision Registry Committee member.

PCA by-laws require association committees to submit a report to the PCA Executive Council for each of its quarterly meetings detailing recent and future activity, as well as budgetary information. PCA divisions, special interest groups (SIGs), and regional chapters are encouraged to do the same. The PCA secretary will e-mail a reminder to all committee chairs and division/SIG/regional chapter representatives approximately two weeks prior to each meeting.
PCA committees are asked to submit an update article for each issue of PCA, Inc. ( PCA divisions, SIGs, and regional chapters typically have their own newsletters.) The purpose of the article is similar to that of the executive council report: to update the association's members on the activities of your committee, including budgetary information.

The PCA Web site represents one the association's primary marketing and communications tools. Averaging almost a thousand visitors each month, it's a powerful one at that! Essential to an effective Web presence is a well-developed Web page publication policy for guiding those who are responsible for the site's development and maintenance.
Those who construct or revise Web pages for the PCA's units--PCA division, special interest group, and regional chapter representatives, PCA committee chairs, and other PCA officials (or their designees)--should consider broader issues such as what information to provide, how that information can be presented clearly, concisely, and attractively, how that information and the page, itself, will be kept current, who the page's audiences are, and how to organize the page so it is easily navigable and user-friendly.
The following three checklists are meant to be helpful in the production and maintenance of useful, attractive, user-friendly Web pages.
Forward content, either as an e-mail attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of his/her role as editor of the site, the PCA Webmaster will edit material as necessary to conserve server space, to avoid compromising our Web host, to ensure that it conforms to Internet etiquette, and, most importantly, to ensure that it is accurate and consistent with official PCA and American Counseling Association by-laws and policy. Then he/she will up-load the submitted material to the appropriate sections of the site.
To assist association officials, the PCA Webmaster will maintain a Web page inventory--a listing of all PCA Web pages and the association units responsible for them--and disseminate it to them periodically (scroll down to the next section for the latest copy).
For more information about PCA Web style, for many helpful site-building resources, or simply for general questions, please contact the PCA Webmaster.
