LPCA of Georgia Awarded Outstanding State Chapter for 2021

Annually, the American Mental Health Counselors Association, AMHCA, recognizes a state chapter with documented activities that are exceptionally outstanding. AMHCA presented the Licensed Professional Counselors Association of Georgia with the Outstanding State Chapter Award for 2021 at a virtual meeting on November 4, 2021. AMHCA President Dr. Beverly Smith explained that LPCA was selected for its phenomenal work in the state of Georgia. She stated that LPCA was instrumental in the passage of the first counseling compact in the United States. Further she added that LPCA supports and lobbies for counselors, provides excellent opportunities for continuing education, and developed an excellent supervision program for credentialing supervisors. LPCA of GA is very honored to receive this formal recognition from AMHCA, the only organization exclusively representing critical mental health counselors in the US. LPCA President, Angela Feeser, accepted the award from Dr. Smith on behalf of LPCA of GA. Also in virtual attendance were LPCA President-Elect Bryan Stephens, Immediate Past President Tim Robinson, LPCA Lobbyist Julianna McConnell, and LPCA Executive Director Gale Macke.
