“My first contact with CCPA came in 1988


when I attended a conference co-hosted by one of its predecessors, the Canadian Guidance and Counselling Association.


[Since then], I have joined Chapters, gone to


conferences, attended AGMs, become a founding a members of a few Chapters; volunteered with


the journal, mentored and supervised students, and helped promote membership through my various


positions, especially as a Counselling Instructor and practicum supervisor.”


advocate of Counsellors, the profession of Coun- selling, and the CCPA. I am a full-time practicing counsellor at a post-secondary institution, who also teachers, supervises, writes, presents, mentors, and plays with my grandchildren as often as I can! I love my family, friends, and our profession— deeply, passionately!


In the past several years, I have been involved with the push to have the profession of counselling rec- ognized and regulated in Alberta, a feat I am thrilled to report was achieved this past December! It is my hope that all counsellors, regardless of lo- cation, can be part of a regulated college. I believe this requires a strong Board and National Office team, with broad counselling and business experi- ence, the ability to see both the big and little pic- ture of issues before them, and the ability to be collegial, courteous, respectful, and strategic. I also believe it requires heart, passion, patience, and te- nacity. I am happy to assure each of you that I


believe we—CCPA—has this in spades. We will continue to work toward our many goals as an as- sociation and strive to keep you informed and well served. Please feel free to contact me, Jen, any one of the Board members, or National Office staff. Remember, this is your association! Don’t be shy, we welcome the connection!


Yours in service,


Kathy Offet-Gartner, PhD, R.Psych (AB) President-Elect, CCPA
