NRCC Leadership Change - Correction
AASCB was informed about a change in leadership for the Commission for Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC). AASCB wishes Cindy Chapman, a regular attendee at the annual conference, best wishes in her next steps.
Schaumburg, IL (May 3, 2018) - The Executive Director of the Commission for Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC), Cindy Chapman, has resigned from the organization effective June 16, 2018, in order to devote more time to her family. Cindy began working with CRCC in 1993 and became Executive Director in late 2005.
CRCC underwent tremendous development and modernization during Cindy's time as Executive Director. She oversaw the development and implementation of a change in the architecture of CRCC's governance model to an elected board member structure. This paved the way for her to direct the design and development of the CRCC COMMUNITY OF SERVICES including the CRCC PROFESSIONAL NETWORK and CRCC e-UNIVERSITY. Developed for rehabilitation counselors and those exploring or new to the profession, this online community is designed to provide access to peer-driven discussion groups, new job openings posted by employers who value the CRC, and dynamic continuing education developed with real-world application in mind.
During her tenure as Executive Director, Cindy guided CRCC in the efforts necessary to maintain standards of quality and rigor for the Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) credentialing program that have led to continuous National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) accreditation. She was instrumental in the on-going development of the CRC eligibility criteria and examination, as well as the CRCC Code of Professional Ethics for Rehabilitation Counselors.
Cindy was involved in every aspect of CRCC's business executing her duties with integrity and professionalism. She has been the face and voice of the CRCC with all major rehabilitation counseling, counseling, and disability services organizations. In addition to this work, Cindy has been deeply committed to and involved in the promotion of the rights of people with disabilities and the rehabilitation counseling profession.
The CRCC Board of Directors voiced unanimous support for Cindy and thanked her for her unwavering commitment to the CRCC and the field of rehabilitation counseling. A national search for her successor has been initiated and a full position announcement and details for applicants will be announced in the coming weeks. The Board asks you to join us in thanking Cindy for her service and wishing her well as a new chapter unfolds in her life.
