Community Conversations

The Executive Board and the Governing Board have been monitoring and discussing the potential impacts COVID-19 may have on our Association and members. We know that states in our region have been particularly affected with schools, colleges, and universities closing to ensure the health and safety of their students and staff.  Our first priority is our members and the students they serve.

In order to support each other, NEACAC will be offering a series of Community Conversations via our Zoom Platform for members to support one another and ask questions. Each scheduled conversation will have a different topic. Please be on the lookout for the announcement of the dates and times of the upcoming virtual conversations. In an effort to make these conversations widely available, most will be recorded and posted on this website.

If there is another topic you would like NEACAC to discuss, please email [email protected] with the subject “Community Conversations.”

Operations Frustrations

Struggling to get students to complete their applications? Busy with stressed out students who fear their application is incomplete? Come to this conversation about admissions operations and the moments in the admissions cycle when our efforts to achieve our goals confuse our colleagues in other seats in the field. We'll start with a panel (presenters listed below), and then open it up for discussion. We hope you will join us.  Register Here
