The American Association of Christian Counselors
Offers FOUR NEW LEVELS of Membership!

Join/Renew Today Student/Retired Level

AACC’s greatest asset is her nearly 50,000 members worldwide—Professional Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Social Workers, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Pastors, Students, Lay Helpers and more…. These “people helpers” come together through AACC to learn, lead and influence. AACC is a “place for you to belong”—an organization that provides support, education, resources, encouragement and strives to be practical, biblically-based and clinically excellent.

Four Levels of Membership Available!

As a way to better serve you, the “caregiver,” in a more effective way, the AACC membership team has been working hard to develop four distinctive levels of membership opportunities. These levels are designed to meet your professional and ministry-related needs so you can make a difference in a hurting and broken world. Whether you are a mental health professional, student, or stay at home mom counseling friends and family over the phone or a cup of coffee… AACC has a membership level to meet your needs.

You may join or renew at the highest level, the Presidential, and save $80 (regular dues $179). Renew now and we will extend your current membership one full year at the Presidential level.
