By Golden Fanning
Chair, AMHCA Graduate Student Committee

If you’re a graduate student, chances are you’re pretty good at multitasking. Many of us balance attending classes and completing assignments with our jobs, families, and personal lives, and it can be hard to see how we could fit anything else on our plates. 

Even though we all are busy, it is important to set aside time to get involved in our field. 

While there are lots of ways to get involved, joining our professional organizations is a great first step, and becoming active in those organizations allows us a fantastic opportunity to contribute to the field before we even graduate. Joining AMHCA’s Graduate Student Committee (GSC) is an excellent way to do just that. 

We work with AMHCA leaders and others to promote AMHCA and the field of mental health counseling nationwide. By sharing our ideas and promoting the goals of this great organization, we truly help shape our field. Participating in the GSC also demonstrates to future employers our leadership skills and our passion for our field. 

The Graduate Student Committee always welcomes the participation of new student members. One of many ways of being involved in the GSC is holding a position on a GSC committee. We currently have open positions in the Western and Midwestern regions. 
AMHCA’s Annual Conference also includes opportunities for students, including the poster session, a graduate student luncheon, and conference volunteer positions. As we plan these events, we would love to have your input! 

Please contact me at for more information. Even if you can only spare a small amount of time, we would greatly appreciate your participation and contributions. As you gear up for the new academic term, please consider sharing some of your talents with our committee!
