Greetings AMCD Family,
It is an honor to serve you during my term as President of the Association of Multicultural Counseling and Development for the 2016-2017 year. I follow in the footsteps of amazing leadership within the organization and am grateful for the opportunity to serve the members and organization that has helped shaped me in the counseling profession.
I want thank Dr. Catharina Chang and her 2015-2016 leadership team for their commitment to the organization and outstanding work this year. As president, my leadership team will continue AMCD’s mission of cultural diversity and defending human rights of marginalized people through the theme “Unity Through Cultural Advocacy.” The theme of cultural diversity and advocacy will be interwoven throughout the year in the featured webinars, conference presentations, and organization initiatives and committee initiatives. In addition, each Ethnic Vice President has been charged with creating a white paper focusing on the current issues impacting their ethnic group, recommendations on how the issues can be addressed within AMCD’s mission, and recommendations for future study.
I thank each of you for your support of the 2016-2017 leadership team and we look forward to serving and working together with the Past Presidents, Executive Board, and membership to continue to move AMCD’s mission and legacy forward.
Kimberly N. Frazier, Ph.D., LPC, LMFT, NCC
