Call for Nominations
The NC Association of Multicultural Counseling and Development has established two service awards to honor professionals who advance our mission in North Carolina. NCAMCD is soliciting nominations for these awards – Devoted Service Award and Advocacy and Social Justice Award. Please consider nominating a colleague, a supervisee (or supervisor), or other counselor or student that advances NCAMCD and its mission in the following manner:
- The Devoted Service Award recognizes a member for excellence in professional leadership and service to NCAMCD in the improvement and enhancement of the counseling profession well beyond the typical involvement in voluntary leadership positions in a professional organization.

Statement on Racialized Violence and Discrimination
As the state branch of the Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development, we wholeheartedly support the following statement by our national association. We recognize that this is a stressful and overwhelming time for many of our members and that some are at a loss as to what they can do to make a difference in the anti-racism fight. While many great resources have been circulating via social media, we want to share one more way: get involved with NCACMD. Help us in the anti-racism movement in the counseling profession, the mental health arena and our communities.
