Request a Speaker
Bring experienced IACAC members to your event (whether in-person or virtually) to give a presentation on one or more topics of your choice. We can offer suggestions from the collective knowledge and expertise of our membership to provide professional development for, and assistance with, programming needed by counseling professionals. Requests made at least two weeks in advance greatly enhance the successful acquisition of speakers.
