The Oregon Counseling Association works to provide professional advocacy for mental health counselors and their clients. Your membership helps us change legislation via the Coalition of Oregon Professional Associations for Counseling and Therapy (COPACT).
COPACT is a tax-exempt non-profit that focuses on reviewing all potential bills that would affect Oregon licensed professional counselors (LPCs), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs), registered interns, and students. They hire a lobbyist to represent LPCs and LMFTs where we need it most. COPACT collaborates with ORCA as well as the Oregon Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (OAMFT).
