Welcome New KCA President, Nick Brummet

My name is Nick Brummet and it is a privilege to serve as the President of KCA this coming year. I am a school counselor at Clay Center Community Middle School, in Clay Center, Kansas, and I have served on the KCA board for the past three years. KCA has provided me professional networking, support, and growth, as well as lasting friendships. I highly encourage our members to get involved in their regions, divisions, and the state level, to reap the same benefits that KCA has provided me. 

Over the past year, our KCA board has worked diligently to set the mission, vision, and guiding principles for our association. During this difficult time, our association continues to emphasize the importance of respect, integrity, collaboration, professionalism, and support for our members, and the dignity of each human being. We pride ourselves in supporting each other, and connecting with many different sectors that can assist in improving the quality of life for the people of our state.

As mentioned above, we highly encourage you to reach out to our executive board if interested in getting involved. We also encourage you to attend our annual conference, which will be held in Topeka, Kansas, March 24th-26th. We look forward to serving and working with many of you this coming year!! Thank you for the opportunity to serve this great state and the counseling profession!
