NACAC Special Interest Groups (SIGs) nurture the growing diversity in our association by providing "micro" communities within which members can network and add value to their NACAC membership experience. These smaller subsets of members are formed for the purpose of knowledge sharing and discussion among members with similar interests whether they are specific subjects, issues or type of institution or students they serve.
Active Special Interest Groups (see list on right sidebar) address member issues and concerns surrounding such topics as Community College issues, GLBTQ students and allies, African-American, Asian/Pacific Islander and Latino/Hispanic issues and private and public school counseling concerns.
We encourage you to get involved in a SIG!
To gain recognition as a new NACAC SIG, a group must apply to NACAC. If you are interested in starting a SIG, the following are required:
- SIG Mission statement articulating how the group furthers and promotes NACAC's mission. Please note that SIGs formed for the discussion and/promotion of a specific product or service will be discouraged.
- Identification of a committed leader and co-leader (to step up in the absence of the primary leader). Both must be members of NACAC.
- Signatures of at least 15 NACAC members.
The material will then be reviewed by NACAC's Member Relations Committee for approval. To form a new SIG, contact Katy Henrichsen, Assistant Director of Governance and Affiliate Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-822-6285 x 135.
