    3  Education & Conference Committee (EACC) Update of progress
    1. New Projects  None
    2. Update of progress 

       The March 27 Annual Conference was cancelled, due to COVID-19. We will refund all registration fees and vendor table fees and reschedule the Annual Conference to August 2020.  In the intervening months the committee will offer up to 4 hours of live streamed CEs (2 hour ethics, 2 hours suicide).

      As background:

      - The $890 spent on conference mailings will be the only expenses that we will not recoup.

      - We considered cancelling the in person conference and instead recording and posting sessions online.  However, I contacted DOPL to ask if they would consider recorded online sessions as "in person" CEs and they said no.  

      -We hope that live streamed webinars (1-2 hours each) will enable us to recoup our financial loss and will enable registrants to obtain their essential credits well in advance of license renewal in September.  

      -The rescheduled Annual conference will also occur before license renewal, so that participants can still earn all credits in time.  We will announce a rescheduled date ASAP so that registrants know they can still obtain credits in time.  

    3. We discussed the idea of live-streaming the conference on March 27, but agreed that we aren't equipped to live stream 4 concurrent sessions and would need to hire that out, which is likely quite expensive and not feasible at this late date.  

    4. Items for vote - None
    5. Budget Changes - None
    6. Suggestions from Board - Ellen and Jim will email registrants and post an announcement on the website today.  Sandi will contact vendors.

      2. Rule 26 - Julie
      3. Julie, Jordan, and Scott meeting with Eric (Attorney)
      4. DOPL Intention to change ethical affiliation to ACA

    Background: Some years ago DOPL approved the adoption of the AMHCA Code of Ethics as the state approved ethics standard for Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselors (LCMHCs). This was done because the AMHCA Code of Ethics is written specifically for Clinical Mental Health Counselors. By contrast, the American Counseling Association’s (ACA) Code of Ethics covers all types of counseling to include vocational counseling, school counseling, guidance counseling, etc.

    Important Considerations:

    • AMHCA has finalized a revision of the Code of Ethics that will be published in December 2019. This revision is in keeping with the highest standards of ethical practice that has been in effect since AMHCA published its first code of ethics in 1978.
    • This updated code reflects the values and standards of the “AMHCA Clinical Mental Health Counselors Declaration, a Hippocratic Oath.” This is the only known public statement of ethics by any mental health association.
    • The AMHCA Code of Ethics also synchronizes with “AMHCA Standards of Practice.” The Standards of Practice illustrate practical guidelines for the conduct of practitioners  with the knowledge and skills required to provide services, offer supervision, and meet requirements for research. The Standards of Practice was used as the prime document for the Congressional Institute of Medicine to substantiate federal legislation for LCMHCs to be hired by the VA, DOD, and to be reimbursed for Tricare.
    • These three supporting documents – the AMHCA Code of Ethics, the Clinical Mental Health Counselors Declaration, and the AMHCA Standards of Practice – form the foundational basis of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling profession.
    • In addition, AMHCA will publish in January 2020, “Essentials of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Profession.” This text will include all of the documents listed above and provide a comprehensive review of the profession’s identity and distinctive attributes, career guidance, and other information that will illustrate the past, present, and future of the profession. This single resource will bring together all of the elements of what it means to be an LCMHC.

    All of these factors are important for the development of the profession into an integrated approach that supports individual LCMHCs and that provides comprehensive practice guidance. As a profession, we need to have our own code of ethics that reinforces our standards of ethical excellence.

    Therefore, the Utah Mental Health Counselors Association strongly recommends that DOPL retain the Code of Ethics of the American Mental Health Counselors Associations in keeping with the public’s right to protection through profession’s specific ethical standards.

    Annual Conference  

    Friday in March (8:30-5:30, with 8 CEs)    Plan one day conference because attendance was low on Saturdays. Reduces CEs by 2.  Proposed prices adjusted accordingly.


    Committee recommends changing to a conference venue, given prior issues with parking, registration space, technology.  After researching 6 venues, we recommend the following because of the cost and quality:

    Recommended Venue:

     UTAH CULTURAL CELEBRATION CENTER

     1355 West 3100 South  (Prices based on 175 attendees)

    Large Hall for 250 & 4 break out rooms, free parking, wifi = $1560 with 20% nonprofit discount.  AV and linens = $1000 estimated.  Estimated total:  $2560

    (Note:  Other venues ranged from $3,300-6,200)

    Catering = $4500 estimated.  Provided by JK Indulgence (a preferred caterer at the Utah CCC and lowest cost) $19.00-22.00 pp lunch, full service; snacks/drinks approx $5.00 pp

    Expenses:

    Venue + catering:  $7060  (20% deposit, due when reserving= $1312)

    DOPL Email lists $350  (Committee recommends purchasing DOPL lists for LCSWs, CMHCs, LMFTs.)

    Total Estimated Expenses:  $7410

    Proposed Conference Fees:

    $160 for Members  ($20 per CE hour)

    $200 for non-members ($20 per CE hour + price of membership)

    $75 for Students ($20 less than last year, when adjusted for lower CEs)

    Estimated Registration Revenue:  $32,000 (10 students, 87 members, 87 non-members)

    (Note:  If registration is as low as 100 registration revenue is $18,000)

    Projected Net:  $24,590  (Adjusted based on vendor and sponsor revenue, below)

    Vendors/exhibitors:

    New initiative
    Charge $250-300 per table?
    Perhaps that would generate $3000

    Programs $200

    Other (e.g., badges) $200

    Lunch and/or snacks: ?

          2.
