    It is my pleasure to serve the Association of Humanistic Counselors (AHC) as President this year.  At the core of humanism is the value of living a life of true fulfillment for the greater good of humanity.  I have seen this core value lived in the lives of many of my peers who consider themselves a part of the AHC family.  They counsel from a perspective of great empathy, and they live with the highest moral values and ethical grounding.  Many give effortlessly to those in need locally, nationally, and internationally.  Some advocate for those who don’t have a voice for themselves, while others act as servant leaders.  It is my goal in this year as President to recognize and provide a platform for my colleagues who are truly humanists in action.

    In this year as we showcase our humanistic colleagues, we will bring awareness to our division, and consequently will draw others who are like-minded and who are driven by the same passions.  We will set a focus as a team to strategically plan our future as a division to address the ongoing needs of those we serve in a resourceful and intentional manner. 

    Finally, in this year I will work closely with our committees to offer support and assistance to ensure that the goals and objectives of each committee are clear and that committee members are supported in their goals. 

    There are many available opportunities for you to get involved in our division.  Please consider joining one of our committees.  I look forward to meeting many of you at ACA in Atlanta, Georgia, and at our AHC annual conference in St. Petersburg, Florida.

    Dr. Mark Stauffer was elected as president-elect of the Association for Humanistic Counseling for the 2017-2020 term. Dr. Stauffer served AHC on membership, leadership fellow’s award, and current affairs committees and has presented over the years at AHC sponsored sessions. In ACA, Dr. Stauffer has also served as Co-chair of ACA’s International Committee, was a CSI International Leaders Fellow and an ACA Emerging Leaders Training participant. Currently, he serves as a Core Faculty member at Walden University in the CMHC Program. Mark has co-edited multiple texts on topics such as Group Work; Career Counseling; Addictions Counseling; Couples, Marriage, and Family Counseling; and most recently completed, Human Development Across the Lifespan (2016). He has been a counselor in the Portland Metro Area in Oregon at crises centers and other non-profit organizations working with individuals, couples and families, often with homeless and at-risk populations.

    As AHC President-Elect, Dr. Stauffer is committed to the core principles and mission of the Humanistic association. Dr. Stauffer plans to promote AHC’s presence and place in counseling and further the aspirations and long term convictions of past and present AHC leaders and our community of members. Dr. Stauffer's goals are to:

    • Promote AHC's annual conference and presence at the ACA conference
    • Continue the division’s traditions (e.g., Empty Plate Project) and support of the Journal of Humanistic Counseling
    • Continue to enhance the Emerging Leaders Project and cultivate important mentoring leadership transitions for those who are emerging
    • Work closely with divisions, branches, and regions of ACA and other humanistic interest groups
    • Support leadership as they continue to improve our online presence: web pages, webinars, newsletter/infochange
    • Finally, Dr. Stauffer's wish is to have a seamless transition of presidents and to carry on important work of our current president, Dr. Vereen, and president elect, Dr. Moore. 


    Let's take a moment to congratulate Dr. Stauffer on a milestone in AHC leadership and the past, present, and future positive impact he will have on the division.​
