The History of the Connecticut Chapter of the Employee Assistance Professionals Association

The history of the Connecticut EAPA chapter is a story of an Employee Assistance effort that grew out of Occupational Alcoholism Specialists and was formed initially as ALMACA, the Association of Labor and Management Administrators and Consultants on Alcoholism. The name eventually changed to EAPA. Our CT Chapter was formed in the mid-1970’s and was truly growing into a solid organization, with members from all over the State. CT EAPA continues to encompasses all the Counties of Connecticut. All of our members work directly or maintain an interest in the field of Employee Assistance. Our membership includes private and not-for-profit, independent, union and management based CEAP’s, social workers, CSAC’s, behavioral health treatment providers, students and marketing professionals. As a group, we are committed to improving our skills and upholding the goals and ethics of the EAP core technology. If you’re not sure what EAP core technology is… come to a meeting! We want to mentor and support one another as we focus on workplace issues and the challenges confronting that most precious organizational resource…employees. Our meetings offer an opportunity for professionals to network and market their programs and practices, discuss topics of interest in the field, learn about new resources, and explore better ways to successfully deliver EAP services. Our monthly meetings will provide you with networking opportunities and the ability to develop new business contacts. You can enhance your education and training through our monthly seminars. You can earn PDHs (professional development hours) and CEUs while learning new skills. You can obtain or maintain the valuable CEAP (Certified Employee Assistance Professional) credential.
