Membership in AARC is a great way to become involved in the counseling profession. As a graduate student, AARC was one of the first counseling organizations I joined. Its members were quick to make me feel at home and let me know that my voice and participation were welcomed. In addition to meeting many colleagues whom I now call my friends, AARC helped me become a better advocate for the counseling profession.
