Carmack Elected Committee Chairman at National Convention

Siloam Springs, Ark (February 11, 2000) — Dr. John Carmack, Assistant Professor of Counselor Education at John Brown University, was recently selected to be the Arkansas Voting Delegate representing the Arkansas State Board of Examiners in Counseling at the American Association of State Counseling Boards’ annual convention in Denver, January 12-16.

At the national convention, Dr. Carmack was elected chairman of the Supervision Committee. This committee formulates and suggests model regulations for all state boards to follow across the country. Even though each state has the power to make their own decisions in the regulations they adopt, the Supervision Committee has led the way in creating models for each of the states to adopt.

Carmack will serve on the Arkansas State Board of Examiners in Counseling for one more year, completing his appointment in February 2001. He has been asked to consider running for the national executive committee after he completes his state-level office. Carmack has not yet replied to the offer.

"Dr. Carmack was among the first members appointed by Governor Huckabee to the Arkansas Board of Examiners in Counseling," said Dr. Jim Worthington, JBU Dean of Graduate Studies. "We are thankful for his exemplary service and leadership in JBU’s graduate counseling program. We are proud of his distinguished service on the State Board which led to this important national appointment."

John Brown University is a private university providing Christ-centered higher education to over 1,500 students from over 47 states and 33 countries. JBU is recognized by the John Templeton Foundation in their Honor Roll of Character Building Colleges and is included in the U.S. News & World Report’s list of top regional colleges and universities.
