MembershipThe Northeast Texas Counseling Association is a chapter of the Texas Counseling Association. We serve an array of mental health professionals throughout Northeast Texas. NETCA offers high quality and affordable continuing education to all members. NETCA helps mental health professionals stay abreast of local, state and national issues. Members have an opportunity to network, gain leadership experience and an opportunity to form lifelong friendships. Members may also benefit from a professional development grant as well as a dependent scholarship. Due to COVID-19, we would like to offer new membership rates. We would love for you to join us today. We offer four types of membership. Which one is right for you?
