(Taken from the NBCC Continuing Education Policies and Procedures)

General Advertising Policies

  1. Advertisements will be accepted only for events, products and services related to the practice of counseling.
  2. The publication of an advertisement by NBCC in no way implies NBCC’s endorsement of the advertiser’s theory, product, or service.
  3. Contact information for the advertiser must be included in the advertisement.
  4. NBCC reserves the right to reject or cancel any advertisement without cause. The content of all advertisements is subject to NBCC’s approval.
  5. Positioning of advertisements is at the discretion of NBCC.
  6. NBCC will not be liable for any costs or damages if, for any reason, it fails to publish an advertisement nor for any errors in publication. Advertisers are responsible for notifying NBCC of any corrections needed. Failure to provide correct information may result in removal or rejection of an ad.
  7. NBCC is not liable for any delays in production or delivery due to any condition beyond NBCC’s control.
  8. Advertisers assume liability for all content of advertisements and will assume responsibility for any claims that may arise from their content.
