President's Message

Welcome to NEACAC!

The New England Association for College Admission Counseling is an association for professionals committed to assisting students during the college admission process. NEACAC connects school counselors, admission counselors, independent counselors, those who work for community based organizations and other member organizations to support and learn from each other.

NEACAC’s executive board and governing board are doing some amazing work this year. Through strategic goal setting and analysis, we are looking to continue to progress and grow our organization to serve you in the best way possible. This is where YOU come in. I understand finding time to do one more thing can be challenging. It can be daunting to commit time during travel season, back to back student meetings, difficult to leave your school building, and the dreaded month of April. Here are some quick and easy ways you can be involved and make your mark in NEACAC. You don’t need to do all these things (although that would be great) but pick one or two that you haven't done before and join us in making NEACAC even better!

  • Attend our professional development events
  • Nominate a colleague for an award
  • Volunteer for a committee  
  • Engage with us on social media
  • Participate in our mentor program
  • Apply for a grant for professional development or a special project you want to run
  • Run for leadership positions
  • Encourage students to attend our fairs and participate in our scholarship contest
  • Tell your colleagues about NEACAC

NEACAC Response to Covid-19

Due to the rapidly developing COVID-19 outbreak, the guidance from the Center for Disease Control, and the travel restrictions at organizations within our affiliate, the NEACAC Governing Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person meeting of the Annual Meeting & Conference and our spring college fairsThese decisions were not made lightly and are presented to you with heavy hearts. Please visit our April eBlast for more details.

The Executive Board also offered formal support to all those affected. This came in the shape of our Clearinghouse for Region Events (found here) and our Community Conversations Series (found here). The Clearinghouse is designed to update fellow counselors, students and their families alike in regards to campus programming and other relevant changes. The Community Conversation series will address a variety of topics that are designed to foster conversation and support across our region.

We also encourage members to visit NACAC's resources, the College Admission Status Update and the Secondary Schools College Admission Services Update for additional information.

Questions? Please contact Executive Director, Christina Doyle.
