President’s Message to PEICA Members

March 2, 2021

Dear PEICA Members,

I would like to start by thanking Bethany Toombs for all her great leadership over the past number of years. She has definitely paved the way for me coming in as president. I would also like to welcome our new executive board members - Shelly Mann, Member-At-Large; Eileen Conboy, Treasurer & Membership Coordinator; Rosalyn Strickey, Communications Officer; and Bethany Toombs, Past-President. I look forward to welcoming and working with both new and experienced members of the executive.

To help strengthen our executive board this year, most board members are participating in a 20 hour board member training course. It will cover topics such as leadership fundamentals, financial literacy and succession planning, as well as many other areas that will only continue to strengthen us as an association. We look forward to being able to put many of our learnings into practice.

As we all know, regulation is on the forefront of our profession here on PEI. Moving forward, we will continue to update our membership via emails and virtual Q&A sessions. To stay informed and up to date, we encourage you to attend and ask questions to help you better understand the process.

I’m keen to work with the executive and membership to continue to build on and grow PEICA into a strong and engaged association. With the counselling profession becoming regulated, the association will become even more important to help counsellors share professional knowledge, develop counselling opportunities such as employment, and further strengthen the counselling profession here on PEI. Should you have any thoughts or questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. I can be reached by email at

Thank you,
Kylah Hennessey, C.C.C.
President, PEICA
