Legal vs Ethical Advice
- CALPCC does not and cannot provide legal advice to its members. Those needing legal advice are advised to consult a private attorney in their community.
- CALPCC does have an Ethics Committee which will process requests for interpretation of the American Counseling Association's Code of Ethics.
CALPCC communicates with its members by email. When you become a member, you are agreeing to receive emails from CALPCC. Be sure to keep your email current in your CALPCC member profile, so you will receive our Updates. If you do not wish to receive emails from CALPCC, you can unsubscribe on one of the email messages.
An important part of CALPCC's work will be to represent LPCCs in
Sacramento. There will be times when we will need LPCCs to advocate on issues important to our profession, so we are
developing an Advocacy Network of CALPCC members. This is why the application requests the names of your California legislators. CALPCC will also cooperate with the national counseling associations that
advocate for counselors in Washington D.C. Since we may need to identify LPCCs who are constituents of a particular member of Congress, we also ask for your representatives in Washington D.C.
