PACFA has upgraded to Level 2 membership of the International Association for Counselling, ensuring direct international representation of our members on global counselling issues.
The global voice for counselling, the IAC is a non-government organisation with UN consultative status membership.
As a Level 2 organisational member, PACFA will:
be involved in direct advocacy consultation and support on progressing recognition of counselling in Australia.
be consulted on IAC policy and position documents submitted to intergovernmental bodies (e.g., United Nations or European Union)
hold a representative position on the IAC Regional Board (IAC Asia-Pacific).
Since 1966, the IAC has worked to advance counselling through practice, education, research and advocacy initiatives.
Being a Level 2 member of the IAC elevates the standing of every PACFA member and allows PACFA to play a part in the ongoing efforts to integrate counselling policy, expertise and excellence worldwide.
