The OCA Leadership Certificate Program (LCP) is an 8-week experience that is a FREE membership benefit for any graduate student, new professional, or seasoned professional discerning a possible future leadership role or who may already be serving in a position. LCP equips leaders with the most important tools and information they need to successfully hold a leadership position in OCA. Participants learn how to strengthen the effectiveness of a division/chapter/committee by applying best practices in successive leadership and through succession planning. They meet and network with their fellow participant leaders and receive mentorship and guidance for getting involved and helping to move the work of OCA forward.

Except for two 1 hour required in person Zoom gatherings, LCP allows participants to move through the program at their own pace through a series of pre-recorded learning modules. Modules are taught by past and present OCA leaders who share their experiences and insights related to some of the most significant aspects of being a leader in our association. All in person and recorded modules must be completed within the same series for which the participant is registered. The total time commitment is approximately five hours and participants receive a certificate of completion and recognition at the All Ohio Counselor’s Conference.

Topics include:

  • Reflections from a past president/current presidential vision
  • OCA history and governance
  • Membership growth
  • Servant leadership
  • Budget/finances
  • Legislative advocacy
  • Recruiting for diversity and inclusion
  • The CE approval process
  • Marketing and social media strategies

Participant OCA membership must be up to date in order to register.
