PSCA Leadership

It’s been said that leaders are born, not made. If that’s true, then we’re all born leaders. Leadership is an attitude and a state of mind, not an innate ability. Everyone has leadership qualities and the potential to lead, no matter what official position we may hold. The need for effective leaders in school counseling has never been greater. Students need school counselors to be effective educational leaders who can effect systemic change in their schools. The Pennsylvania School Counselors Association needs leaders who can guide the school counseling profession in Pennsylvania into the future.  If you have a question about PSCA, or are interested in getting more involved in PSCA, please contact PSCA Leadership at

The PSCA Governing Board consists of the President, President Elect, Immediate Past President, Treasurer, and the sixteen region representatives, all of whom are voting members.  The Executive Director and the Secretary shall be ex-officio members without a vote.  The governing board serves as the entity through which PSCA's general administrative and executive functions are implemented.  The Governing Board meets typically four or five times, no less than twice a year.

The mission of the Pennsylvania School Counselors Association is to expand the image and influence of professional school counselors, to promote professional and ethical practice, and to advocate for equity and access for all students.
