The many benefits of membership in the Chi Sigma Iota include:
- A newsletter
- Annual Conventions
- Access to local, national, and international level networks
- Awards and Recognition
- Membership Certificate and Pin
Membership in the international honor society can make a valuable contribution to your professional development. Membership affirms that you are a member in a society which values scholarship and also confirms your academic excellence and ultimate potential. Your Certificate of Membership and label pin are a visible symbol of your personal commitment to excellence as a professional counselor. We encourage members to proudly display theirs.
You will become a part of a wide network of professional counselors and educators who ascribe to the very highest standards of excellence, scholarship and best practices. Alpha Mu encourages these aspirations through mentors, speakers, programs and awards. Alpha Mu serves as a link within the Stark County community to promote interaction between counselor educators, students, alumni, and area professionals. The Chapter provides a forum for interaction, sharing of Best Practices and concerns, discussion of issues and support for common interest. Alpha Mu has regular Board Meetings, social events and an annual training program on a variety of topics of current interest.
Chi Sigma Iota supports these goals through activities like leadership training, The International Newsletter, membership networking, leadership and various recognition awards, support services to local chapters and collaboration with others on counseling advocacy and professionalism. An annual meeting is also held during the annual American Counseling Association (ACA) Convention in the spring of each year.
