By-law, Article III, Membership, Section 1. Members of the Corporation
Members: Membership is limited to institutions of higher education with a counseling center that provides confidential mental health counseling and developmental counseling to college students per state mental health laws and professional ethical guidelines. Academic department training clinics that are the sole providers of campus counseling services to students may also qualify to be members. Each member institution may designate only one counseling center director as its representative member. Membership shall consist only of those institutions whose dues are current. Any eligible institution shall become a Member on approval of the membership application by the Treasurer and payment of dues under Section 5 of this Article. General Membership Criteria Information
Emeritus Membership. There shall also be members known as Emeritus Members. Emeritus Membership is open to any person who has been a member of AUCCCD for a minimum of 5 years at the time of his/her professional retirement or otherwise departure from the position of Director. While Emeritus members may be employed as consultants to provide expertise on specific topics (e.g., research, training, etc.), they may not serve in a direct or indirect supervisory role over the counseling center director or staff nor be employed as a counselor at a college counseling center. However, anyone who became an Emeritus member prior to 2011 will retain that status. Emeritus members are non-voting members and do not pay membership dues.
