    SACES would like to announce the 2014 Emerging Leaders Workshop to be held at the SACES conference in Birmingham, Alabama, on Thursday, October 9, 2014. Drs. Don Locke and Pam Paisley, who have both been extraordinary leaders in SACES, will conduct the workshop. Lunch will be provided for all participants.

    The Emerging Leaders workshop is designed to help students and new faculty members discover how leadership can enhance their own professional development, to enhance the diversity of SACES, and to help engage talented and dedicated leaders with SACES. In addition, the presenters will provide an overview of SACES leadership opportunities and introduce participants to current SACES leadership. Invited participants will receive a $200 stipend for attendance to the workshop and conference. A review panel will select attendees with a demonstrated commitment to the profession of Counselor Education and Supervision, leadership experience and potential, and participation in state, regional, and/or national ACES organizations and conferences. Emerging leaders that represent racial and ethnic diversity are particularly encouraged to apply.

    Persons interested in being considered as a fellow or individuals submitting a third party nomination for the emerging leaders program, please forward electronically the nominee's vitae and a letter of nomination to:

    Dr. Heather Trepal
    SACES Emerging Leaders Committee

    In the nomination letter, please confirm that the nominee is a SACES member and has not previously received an Emerging Leaders fellowship. All materials must be received by May 30, 2014.

    Kudos and thank you to all the wonderful 2012 SACES Conference volunteers, presenters, leadership, and attendees in Savannah! This conference had the largest attendance of any previous SACES conference - with over 100 more attendees than usual. We are grateful to our conference lead, Heather Trepal, and Jennifer Jordan as well! It is obvious that the SACES membership continues to have vibrant and dynamic counselor educators, supervisors, and students!
