Joe Norton founded the Caucus of Gay Counselors (CGC) at the APGA Convention in New Orleans.


Caucus name changed to the National Caucus of Gay and Lesbian Counselors (NCGLC) to reflect the feminist movement's issues and the conference was boycotted in Las Vegas because Nevada reject the Equal Rights Amendment.


Organization's name changed to the Association of Gay and Lesbian Issues in Counseling (AGLIC) to focus on sexual orientation issues not the sexual orientation of the counselor.


Organization included bisexual issues and became the Association of Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Issues in Counseling (AGLBIC).


The organization maintained the AGLBIC name for almost 20 years with repeated discussions on the role of advocacy for transgender individuals and how that could be included in the name.


Name officially changed to the Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues in Counseling (ALGBTIC).
