When We Meet

We meet throughout the school year.  Each year  we have different organization or colleges host our meetings. Our average attendance has been between 30-40 members.  Our membership includes counselors from all of the Cape Cod Schools, including Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.  In addition, Plymouth, Wareham, and other South Shore counselors also attend.

Where We Meet

Our meetings are held in a variety of locations. An effort is made to schedule meetings in locations convenient to most of our members.


School districts are encouraged to purchase annual membership for school counselors and related personnel. Those seeking entry to the field are able to purchase annual memberships at a discounted rate. Please contact the treasurer for more information.
