Choosing a Licensed Counselor or Therapist

Seeking support, encouragement, and information through professional counseling can help you to be your best, personally and professionally. You can partner with a trusted counselor to improve yourself, your relationships, or get help with common issues like depression or anxiety. 
Several types of professionals provide counseling: licensed professional counselors (LPC), licensed clinical social workers (LCSW), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), psychologists, and psychiatrists.
Every state has specific laws, regulations, and requirements for obtaining a professional license. A master’s degree from an accredited university, supervised experience, and agreement to ethical codes, along with passing a licensing exam, are minimal requirements.

FROM THE JUMPSEAT COMMITTEE: KCM ISSUES

041217_jumpseatpr.png

Recently, there have been multiple instances of FedEx pilots being told that they cannot use KCM to get through security. We're working to get to the bottom of this issue, but for now, we ask you to show up early for deadheading in case you can't get access through KCM.
Please let us know if you have any issues with KCM. We need specific information including location, time etc. Please send an email to FDXJumpseat@alpa.org with the relevant information.
Thanks for your assistance, 
FDX MEC Jumpseat Committee

FEDEX ALPA MENTOR PROGRAM
T he Membership Committee recently launched a new program aimed at pilot mentoring for new hires. Our first group of pilot mentors were trained last September and assigned to new hires in October. This initiative was designed by and is run by ALPA pilot volunteers. The program's focus is to provide information, procedures and resources related to a career as a FedEx pilot, specifically during the first 12-15 months of employment. The intent is to assist new hires and to help them successfully navigate through their probation period. I am sure that you all agree that having a mentor available would be a great resource to them as they learn the FedEx system form. As FedEx continues to hire, we will continue to need more mentors. We are seeking dedicated ALPA
volunteers to become mentors. We will host our next in-person mentor training seminar in Memphis February 12-13, 2019.
For those in ANC, CGN and HKG, we will have online training sessions that will be scheduled in the near future. To read more and sign up to be a part of this great program, please click here
