    Mary Westcott tributes Northeast Counselors Association (NECA)

    NECA was a group of over 200 devoted professionals who faithfully came to monthly meetings hosted by colleges.  Yes, there was always a dynamic speaker/program, but members came to share experiences of their daily lives as school counselors.  They came to seek encouragement and provide support.  Many leaders became involved with MASCA, taking positions of leadership, conference involvement and professional development.  This affiliate is sorely missed.


    The MASCA Tributes program allows MASCA members to thank mentors, colleagues, professors, affiliate leaders, etc. with a Tribute donation. Recipients are honored at specific MASCA events with a presentation / certificate.
