    V. Committee Updates & Votes

    Executive Committee (EXEC)
      1. No meeting. Adjourned until January
    2. Legislative & Public Policy Committee. (LPPC)
    1. New Projects
      1. Working on disseminating information to members and the public
      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.

    1. Supervision Guidelines

    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

    Expenses:

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

    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)

          2. Conversion therapy ban action: WATCH: After the legislature failed to prohibit conversion therapy for minors, the governor has asked the Psychological Association to develop rules for professional associations regarding conversion therapy-- that it is "not helpful, can be harmful, and should be prohibited."

Motion for policy & procedure for managing the inurement to reimburse UMHCA board members who renew their annual membership dues through AMHCA Unified Dues: I motion for the board to implement a reimbursement policy and procedure for UMHCA board members who renew their annual membership through AMHCA Unified dues. The procedure shall be:

    1. Board member is to submit an Email request to the treasurer requesting reimburse and indicating the expiration date of the annual membership.

    2. Reimbursement will be made at the conclusion of the member's membership year.

    V. Committee Updates & Votes
    1. Executive Committee
      1. New projects
        1. Office space:( Recommendation) The  Executive Committee has determined and is recommending that UMHCA secure an office space. This issue will be put for a vote to approve up to $300 per month for this space.
        2. Attorney subscription: (Discussion) The Executive Committee is working on a new benefit for UMHCA members to partner with a law firm. We are looking at a no liability partnership that will provide subscribed members with defined legal services.
        3. Legislative and Public Policy Committee (LPPC): (Recommendation) The Executive Committee, has determined that the LPPC, which is at the forefront of UMHCA's advocacy efforts needs an expanded structure to meet the demands of this committee's scope of work. The recommendation is to establish a dual-chair structure with one chair overseeing legislative /lobbying/legal concerns and the other overseeing DOPL matters such as licensing and supervision. In addition to the dual-chair structure, the EXEC proposes a student be appointed as co-chair in keeping with other UMHCA committees. Once approved, these recommendations, and related division of responsibilities will be written into the ByLaws.
        4. Stipends for attendees to AMHCA Annual Conference: (Recommendation) Per request of the presidential adviser, the EXEC recommends that UMHCA award a $300 stipend to Gary Otis and Sandi Williams for representing UMHCA at the annual AMHCA conference.
