The AOCC seeks proposals for sessions focused on advanced school and clinical/mental health counseling topics. The Ohio Counseling Association (OCA) and the Ohio School Counselor Association (OSCA) will review submitted proposals, each selecting an equal number of sessions for presentation at the 2016 AOCC, November 2-4, 2016.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: Friday, May 6, 2016 at midnight.
  • Presenters are encouraged to submit sessions outlining engaging practices that can be easily implemented into one's professional practice. 
  • Proposals addressing advanced content are strongly preferred.  
  • Only four (4) presenters are permitted per session - one Lead Presenter and up to three Co-Presenters. If you have a special presentation request that would require additional presenters, please contact the Conference Manager before submitting a proposal. 
  • Proposed sessions may be 90, 105, 180, or 210 minutes in length. Presenters may be asked to modify the length if accepted. 
  • Presenters may submit more than one proposal for consideration.

Tips to Submitting a Successful Proposal:

  • As the leading professional development event in the state of Ohio for counselors, membership to OCA and/or OSCA is strongly recommended for all presenters.
  • Presenters are encouraged to review the Scoring Rubric that will be utilized in the Blind Review of proposals before submitting their proposal.
  • Presenters are also encouraged to review the Tips to Submitting a Strong Proposal to gain additional understanding of what OCA and OSCA are looking for in a successful proposal and session.
