Advocacy Efforts

The Colorado Counseling Association is currently engaged in the 2021 Colorado Legislative Session. Your membership empowers the CCA to advocate for professional counselors legislatively at State and Federal levels.

The CCA's legislative advocacy utilizes collaboration with other mental health professional associations, lobbyists, and VoterVoice in support of professional counselors in Colorado.

All legislative efforts are led by the CCA Executive Director, Dr. Ryan M. Burkhart. It is important that all legislative efforts are coordinated and collaborative. Please contact CCA if any legislative needs or questions arise.

Current Advocacy Efforts

In the 2022 legislative term, the CCA is bringing forward legislation to bring the state of Colorado into the Interstate Compact, an initiative led by the American Counseling Association. You may follow the progress of this bill by clicking here.
