  • Supporting and encouraging collaborative relationships and providing professional development opportunities for all members;
  • Advocating for policies that impact the profession at the state, regional and national level; and

President's Message


Dear Colleagues and Members,

The New England Association for College Admission Counseling’s mission to support professionals in a student’s transition to postsecondary education remains firm. Over the last year, we have been met with unprecedented challenges which have tested our abilities to deliver quality programming, maintain a sense of community through networking and camaraderie, and maintain a fiscally responsible and sound organization. 

While we were faced with the challenges of the global pandemic and moving and altering our programming and opportunities to a virtual format, we also were brought face to face with the reckoning of racial injustice within this country.  In our role as educational practitioners, we have a responsibility to actively dismantle structures of oppression and amplify the voices and work of our colleagues and students of color.  I am proud of the work NEACAC has taken on recently in this area and acknowledge that we have more on the horizon to work towards. 

Today, NEACAC remains more than 3,600 members strong with fourteen standing committees and numerous opportunities for involvement. Whether you are new to our Association, or someone who has previously served in some capacity, I call on you to consider volunteering to assist in the work and continue to build your network within New England and beyond.

This year, I am hopeful we are able to begin the process of returning to some level of normalcy. The Governing Board will continue to offer accessible, virtual programs that have proven successful while providing opportunities for us to gather and connect again, continuing to build our community as we have done for the last 55 years.  

We encourage you to follow NEACAC on social media platforms, read our monthly eBlasts, volunteer, and participate in our various programs.  More importantly, your voice matters and I personally invite you to connect with me regarding ways in which NEACAC can be supportive to you and your institution or organization.
