2024 Nominations and Election


The nomination window is now open for the CASC Board of Directors. There are six (6) seats on the Board to be filled in 2024 that will serve a four-year term. CASC needs dedicated school counselor-advocates to become members of the CASC Board of Directors. The CASC Board is focused on creating conditions so California School Counselors can practice with the highest level of effectiveness using an equity lens. CASC plays a vital role in promoting the profession of school counseling to all our stakeholders on a state, regional and national level. It is through the dedication of the members of the CASC Board that we ensure school counselors remain leaders in the field of education.
