Letter from our President

Welcome to the newly redesigned RIMHCA website.  When the suggestion to begin this project was made several months ago, it was greeted with enthusiasm by the Board.  The goal was to create a site that would serve our members, our profession, and our clients.  Through the efforts, energy, and dedication of several Board members (and the assistance of a consultant) we have a website that achieves that goal.
I’d like to share a few of the highlights:

Find a counselor:  RIMHCA members will be able to register with their areas of specialization and a link to their website.  Visitors to the site will be able to review the information provided and locate a therapist who will meet their needs.

Classified ads: Community members and agencies will be able to advertise office space for rent or to see what is available, or to list clinical employment opportunities (ads free of charge for RIMHCA members).

Upcoming trainings and seminars: RIMHCA members, in addition to having access to continuing education opportunities offered through RIMHCA or providers from other disciplines, are eligible for CEUS at no additional cost or a reduced rate.

Networking:  Counselors, whether members or not, have the opportunity to meet, share resources, and provide support to each other.

On a personal note, I would like to add that serving as the President of RIMHCA is a privilege and honor.  The opportunity to work with and laugh with the talented people on the Board is a gift that I truly appreciate.  I learn something from them every time we meet (and from the countless emails between times). The opportunity to meet other professionals in the field through the events that RIMHCA sponsors is the excitement that such a special gift brings.

Please let us know what you think about this website and share your ideas for ensuring that RIMHCA is truly representing its members.

Vera DeMarco
President, RIMHCA
