President's Message

Welcome to NEACAC’s website!

Founded in 1966, New England Association for College Admission Counseling (NEACAC) leads, supports and advances the work of counseling, admission and enrollment professionals by promoting ethical responsibility, professional development, and advocacy as they help all students realize their full educational potential – with a particular emphasis on the transition from high school to college.  One of largest affiliates of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), NEACAC has over 3500 members and strives to welcome, assist, and support our counselors and their professional needs. 

In 2016-17, as we wrap up NEACAC’s 50th anniversary celebration, hundreds of volunteers are involved in planning professional development programs, implementing our new Adopt-a-District initiative, developing relationships with our sponsors, lobbying state and federal legislators, rolling out new communication vehicles, holding events about two-year colleges, and preparing a rich slate of nominees and a balanced budget. We are also looking ahead to our Annual Meeting and Conference at Keene State College, to having the NACAC Conference in Boston in 2017, and to organizing a joint conference with New York State ACAC in 2018. This year, we’ll host over 20 NEACAC and NACAC college fairs, continuously review our membership categories and bylaws, stay abreast of NACAC’s work with our Statement of Principles of Good Practice, and be well-represented nationally by our Assembly Delegates, committee members, Presidents Council members, and Board nominees. Our Strategic Framework highlighting Professional Community, Organizational Effectiveness, Knowledge, Expertise and Recognition, and Advocacy will guide our Board’s work.  

If you are a counseling or enrollment professional, or work in a related field, I hope you will find in NEACAC a professional community that sustains, educates, and enriches you.  This website offers many resources for you to help you do your job (or find a new one!), network, and learn. 

I am so honored to lead this vibrant and vital Association – to serve you and to serve WITH you – as we begin our next 50 years.  Come join us!

Sincerely,

 

Sherri Geller 
NEACAC President, 2016-17

Co-Director of College Counseling, Gann Academy, Waltham, MA
