WSCA 2018 Annual Conference 
'School Counselors:  Agents of Change'
February 20-22, 2018 - Monona Terrace, Madison, WI


On behalf of the Wisconsin School Counselor Association, welcome to the 2018 Wisconsin School Counselor Association’s Annual Conference!

This year we are returning to the Monona Terrace and city of Madison for another fabulous conference with professional development, personal growth, and networking.
The Wisconsin School Counselor Association is proud to be a nationally recognized leader due to our amazing conference and outstanding members.  The focus of this year’s conference is “Agents of Change”.
The Wisconsin School Counselor Association is proud to be a nationally recognized leader due to our amazing conference and outstanding members.  The focus of this year’s conference is “Agents of Change”.  Last year Wisconsin School Counselors “answered the call” and this year you have the very important challenge of being the “Agents of Change” in your schools.  Your leadership and advocacy are critical to the success of our conference, consider submitting a sectional proposal, attending Afternoon on the Hill or helping out a new counselor sitting next to you! As a community, we look forward to coming together to learn, recharge and support each other.  

WSCA once again has several exciting partnerships for the conference:
  • WSCA understands the critical role school counselors have as leaders and advocates in their schools. To support this work, WSCA has contracted with Colette Dollarhide, a national expert on school counselor leadership to provide a full day preconference on the topic.  The morning will be dedicated to school counselors and in the afternoon WSCA is inviting school administrators to attend with counselors to learn how to effectively leverage school counselors as leaders.  
  • WSCA has been working closely with DPI and will be hosting an ACP Leadership half-day preconference.  This will be paired with a targeted ACP career development half-day preconference.  Check out the conference website for more details.  
  • Many thanks to Great Lakes for expanding the Conference Scholarship!  WSCA can offer 50 scholarships for new high school counselors and ACP coordinators. 
WSCA leadership has a team of Coordinators that are working diligently to support counselors across Wisconsin through professional development, advocacy, and networking. Coordinators, along with the Board of Directors look forward to seeing you at this year’s conference.  Please connect with us during the conference; we would love to hear from you.  

Thank you for your dedication and work on the behalf of students.

WSCA Executive Director
