Maine Counseling Association Awards

          Distinguished Counseling Professional 

and 

Service to the Profession of Counseling

Each year, the Maine Counseling Association takes nominations for two awards created in honor of Martin "Marty" Gallant - Distinguished Counseling Professional and John Parkman - Service to the Profession of Counseling.  

 These awards honor Maine Counseling Association members working in a variety of settings across the profession including K-12 schools, colleges and universities, community-based agencies, clinical facilities, and private practice. Counselors considered for the awards are ethical, effective, and diligent advocates for clients or students. They are leaders, mentors, and positive examples of professionalism within the counseling community, with consistent accomplishment throughout their careers. They exemplify integrity, patience, and compassion in their empowering work with students, clients, families, or colleagues. They advance the reputation of our profession by their work and example. Recipients of the "Service to the Profession" award, particularly, have demonstrated a high level of involvement and commitment to our professional organizations.  


To nominate a member for one of these awards, please contact the Maine Counseling Association President, Wendy Bradstreet at president@maineca.org or at (207)268-2771

Presentations are made at the MeCA Annual Conference
