It is with pleasure and excitement that I express my interest to serve as SACES Secretary for the 2019-2020 term. I am dedicated to the field of counselor education and counseling as my passions are founded in helping and serving others. I find motivation and joy in creating effective and intentional collaborations that create an atmosphere of growth, learning, and development. My commitment and interest in being part of SACES began early on in my doctoral studies. I was selected as a 2016 SACES Emerging Leader, earned a 2016 SACES Best Practice and Research Award Grant, and was selected as the 2017 SACES Outstanding Graduate Student, Doctoral Level Award. I quickly saw how these opportunities made available to graduate students demonstrated the high level of commitment SACES has in supporting and advocating for graduate students’ growth and development. I have also had opportunities to connect with executive board members of various educational organizations. In my role as Communications Chair for the Counseling and Human Development division (Division E) of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), I am responsible for maintaining an open and productive lines of communication through the development and maintenance of the AERA Division E website and through social media platforms. I hope to apply this same communication style as SACES Secretary. Furthermore, as a former Co-Secretary for the Counselor Education and Supervision Doctoral Student Organization (CEDSO) at the University of Central Florida, I further developed an appreciation and understanding for the need of maintaining organized records. As a member of the Specialty Standards and Statements committee for the Association of Assessment and Research in Counseling (AARC), I contribute to making sure the standards of AARC are current and relevant for its members. Finally, as an Assistant Professor at the University of North Texas, I am grateful to have the opportunity to support and mentor students through SACES’ objectives of Scholarship, Advocacy, Community, Education, and Supervision. Ultimately, in serving as your SACES secretary, I will continue to embody and encourage these very objectives that make SACES and its members a strong force within the world of counselor education. I appreciate your time and consideration for the opportunity to serve as your SACES Secretary for the 2019-2020 term. Thank you.
My name is Dr. Andrew M. Burck, and I am an Associate Professor at Marshall and I am honored to be nominated for the secretary for SACES 2019-2022. In my time as a counselor educator I have experience in this role. In my role as the Member-at-Large (Publications) for AARC. In this role, I wrote numerous documents to publishers, journal editors, and the executive committee of AARC. I have also worked at the state level as the Treasure and President of our organization. Both of these roles required numerous written communication between the elective board members and members of the organization in order to inform and update about current operations of the organization. Thank you for your time.
As an emerging counselor educator and current licensed professional counselor, I look forward to continuing my career in counselor education and supervision and strengthening my leadership skills through serving as Secretary for SACES. I have served the mental health profession in various capacities for 13 years and I am eager to continue to serve the profession in a leadership role. Throughout my career I have remained diligent and committed to serving and advocating for both clients, students, and counselors-in-training. I would like to bring that passion, diligence, and dedication for equity and well-being to the members of SACES. I have served on various university committees and committees within my community and I have always remained organized, dedicated, and professional. Through that experience I have learned the balance between knowing when to manage and when to listen. In addition, I recognize the importance of completing tasks in a timely manner while still delivering a high degree of quality work. I appreciate the opportunity to be nominated for Secretary of SACES and I am confident that I would be an asset to the organization. Thank you for your consideration.
