Membership is open to all counselors in an educational setting, as well as retired members of the counseling community.
Beginning in 2022, ISCA announced a change to the dues year to now be from July to June.
This change better aligns with the association's fiscal year.
The dues year will be July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023.
