It is my pleasure to serve the Association of Humanistic Counselors (AHC) as President this year. At the core of humanism is the value of living a life of true fulfillment for the greater good of humanity. I have seen this core value lived in the lives of many of my peers who consider themselves a part of the AHC family. They counsel from a perspective of great empathy, and they live with the highest moral values and ethical grounding. Many give effortlessly to those in need locally, nationally, and internationally. Some advocate for those who don’t have a voice for themselves, while others act as servant leaders. It is my goal in this year as President to recognize and provide a platform for my colleagues who are truly humanists in action.
In this year as we showcase our humanistic colleagues, we will bring awareness to our division, and consequently will draw others who are like-minded and who are driven by the same passions. We will set a focus as a team to strategically plan our future as a division to address the ongoing needs of those we serve in a resourceful and intentional manner.
Finally, in this year I will work closely with our committees to offer support and assistance to ensure that the goals and objectives of each committee are clear and that committee members are supported in their goals.
There are many available opportunities for you to get involved in our division. Please consider joining one of our committees. I look forward to meeting many of you at ACA in Atlanta, Georgia, and at our AHC annual conference in St. Petersburg, Florida.
