Conference Announcement

We had to make the difficult decision to postpone the 2019 Association for Creativity in Counseling Conference due to Hurricane Dorian.


We have finally been able to confirm the new conference dates.  Please join us in Clearwater, FL for our pre-conference on Thursday, December 12 and the full conference on Friday, December 13  - Saturday, December 14. 

Individuals who cannot attend the rescheduled dates may apply their registration fee minus $30 toward next year's conference fee and simply need to email by November 1, 2019 to request we apply your registration toward the 2020 conference.


If you prefer a refund, please note the refund policy for weather-related cancellations. 

If you have questions, please contact LoriAnn Stretch or Ruth Ouzts Moore:


A cancellation request must be received via email to

An administrative fee of $30 will be assessed to cover registration costs, credit card transaction fees, and conferences expenses incurred as a result of the registration. All refund requests must be received in writing by 8/23/19.


Weather-related late cancellations: We committed to keeping registration prices low over the past several years. However, we have already committed extensive financial resources for the conference spaces, hotel rooms, receptions, meals, totes, lanyards, programs, etc. based on registrations. With weather-related events impacting conference travel, we lose money with late cancellations. Therefore, the $100 admin fee is designed to offset the losses and still allow us to cover our conference and operating budgets for the next two years.

  • Cancelled before August 23, 2019 - a full refund less a $30 admin fee

  • After August 23, 2019 - a refund less a $100 admin fee
