MVCA is an organization of professional school and college counselors in Madison and Oneida counties, who are dedicated to providing our students with comprehensive school counseling services, including post-secondary planning.  

 As an organization, we have sponsored activities that benefit our students directly and indirectly, including hosting our annual College Night and awarding thousands of dollars in scholarship money to students of our members.  In addition, we are planning to expand our services and activities to become more inclusive of counselors working with all grades levels. Current ideas include developing professional learning communities and workshops addressing the Comprehensive Counseling Plans.

The MVCA is also an affiliate member of NYSSCA.   You can find out about their organization by clicking here.

Our officers for the 2018-2019 school year are:

Deb Ellis – NY Mills – Co-President

Pete Scialdone – Sauquoit Valley HS – Co-President

Jim Davis – Samaritan Center – Treasurer

Kenny Morrison – Mohawk Valley Community College – Secretary

All area counselors are invited to join our association.  The membership fee is only $10.  This year, we ask that all membership registration be done online. We also ask that all memberships be submitted and paid for by February 15, 2019.  This gives us time to compose our membership list for accurate distribution of information regarding the scholarships, annual dinner, and additional events as needed.  Payments can be made through PayPal or by check to:

Mohawk Valley Counselors’ Association

P.O. Box 5

Please consider joining!  We would love to have all area counselors at our dinners and events.  If you would like to be part of our events planning committees, please indicate this on your registration.
