The 2024 conference is scheduled to be held, April 25-27, at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Convention Center in Spearfish. Our theme this year is “Better Together”. Special consideration will be given to proposals that focus on this theme. As counselors, how can we work together to better deal with the world today?




Please note, while we do give special consideration to presentations connected to the theme, our goal is to provide a well rounded conference experience for all community mental health, private practice, and school counselors, and welcome a variety of presentation submissions. Introduction to techniques and having resources attendees can implement in theory daily work is highly sought after.
