Counseling Association Cancels Conference

“In protest of a law they say is an affront to the profession of counseling and the worst legislation they’ve ever tracked, the American Counseling Association has canceled its annual conference scheduled for Nashville next year.

At stake is a conference that the group says would bring more than 3,000 conventioneers to Nashville, generate up to $4 million in combined local and state tax revenue and have a local economic impact of up to $10 million.”
