President's Message


Greetings Current and Prospective NEACAC Members!

It is my sincere pleasure to be able to serve in the role of President of the New England Association of College Admissions Counseling (NEACAC) and welcome you to browse our site and learn more about us! Our association is a vibrant and active member-driven professional organization made up of over 3500 professionals who guide high school students and families through the myriad post-secondary educational opportunities that are available both nationally and internationally.  What makes NEACAC so special is the diverse and extensive professional development and networking opportunities that are offered to enhance members, all delivered through a dedicated volunteer membership.  NEACAC made me a more informed, connected, and educated school counselor and it is my hope that in the 2018-2019 school year NEACAC continues to be the leading resource for admissions and counseling professionals. 

This past year involved tremendous excitement and momentum for our organization as we welcomed the National Conference to Boston and joined with New York State ACAC for a Super Conference at Marist College. Both of these events afforded our members the opportunity to learn from each other and continue the dialogue about what makes us best able to develop as professionals and to work with our students and families.  The commitment and enthusiasm of our membership is certainly contagious and I am looking forward to seeing what this next year will bring for our association. 

This summer will kick off a few of our flagship professional development opportunities when we invite secondary school counselors to come together at Roger Williams University for Advanced Secondary School Counselor Summer Institute (ASSCSI) to discuss vital issues facing our profession as well as providing an opportunity to connect and reflect on our profession.  Just a week later we will welcome new professionals to the field at Summer Institute (SI) at Providence College.  A group of faculty members have been working all year to provide training, best practices, and networking to get new professionals excited and connected to the field of college admission counseling.  Many of us who have attended Summer Institute as we embarked on our own careers remember our own SI fondly and still remain connected with other attendees and faculty members.

NEACAC strives to be a vibrant resource for current and prospective members.  NEACAC is at its best when our members share with and learn from one another.  I encourage each of you to join a group or committee, and if you do not know where your particular expertise and interest would fit, reach out to one of the members of the governing board, a group of committed and passionate leaders in our organization, to find a match and get involved!  To our prospective members:  we welcome you to join our regional association and attend a program, a meeting, or one of our college fairs to get see the amazing programs that we have to offer.  We will continue to better serve our members with voices and membership from all types of institutions from our New England states.

I look forward to a year of opportunities and collaboration.  I hope to see many of you throughout the year and mark your calendars for our next Annual Meeting & Conference at the University of Rhode Island in beautiful Kingston, Rhode Island.
