    Dear Fellow SMHCA Members,

    As you may know, this year’s AMHCA conference is happening right in our backyard, at the Doubletree Orlando East/UCF! Not only that, but our very own Aaron Norton will be presenting the keynote address!  

    Hopefully, many of you have already made plans to be there or are currently considering taking advantage of this amazing opportunity to network at a national level so close to home (see the AMHCA website for conference details:

    For those of you who will be at AMHCA - or if you just want to drive out and join us for the evening - you are cordially invited to attend a special SMHCA event on Thursday, August 2nd, at a location to be determined in the Orlando area, immediately following the final breakout session of the day. We will gather for a communal meal and to spend some quality time together as colleagues and friends.  Look for details on our Facebook Page:

    Details will be announced as we get closer to the date, but be sure and pencil it into your calendar/conference planner now!  We have a lot to celebrate as we come to the end of another successful SMHCA year, and you won’t want to miss this rare opportunity for an evening of fellowship and fun!

    Hope to see you all there!

    Cristina Gonzalez, LMHC, CRC
