Nearly 3,000 people made their way to the Las Vegas desert to attend ASCA’s 2021 Annual Conference.

Amanda Nolasco, School Counselor Specialist at Arizona Department of Education, and Brian Mathieson, a school counselor in Vancouver, WA and Xello user, co-hosted a fireside chat on the third day of the conference.
