Committee Info

The Government Relations, Advocacy and Ethics Committee collaborates with the DOE on a wide variety of items.  This includes a Day on the Hill during National School Counseling Week to promote and advocate for our profession and continuing to define the role of the school counselor. Check out the DOE website for a revised version of the Maine Comprehensive School Counseling Program Model.

The Communications/Membership Committee is getting the most up-to-date information out to our members through email blasts, the MESCA website and on our members-only Facebook page. Please visit these sites for conversation with other school counselors, resources, relevant articles and new ideas.

The School Counselor of the Year/Awards Committee is undergoing some changes to make sure our school counselors are being nominated and applying for this prestigious award. The committee is reaching out to administrators, superintendents and other staff members so they know this award exists! The process is aligned with the ASCA school counselor of the year application. We will celebrate our next SCOY at the state house. If you know a school counselor you would like to nominate, please do so!

If you are interested in joining a committee or getting more information, email us at maineschoolcounselor@gmail.com!

Individuals interested in joining a committee must be a MESCA member.
