The governing council approved 2014 Code of Ethics at the ACA Conference held in Honolulu, Hawaii. This was an improvement over the 2005 edition. The overall aim was to increase the number of school counselors. In 2014, White House had a partnership with Harvard and San Diego University. Here they offered pre-service training and various policies related to school counseling. The first lady of US, Michael Obama was a part of this.
In this context, 2015 School Counselor of the year was also honored.
