Committees are an important part of NACAC’s leadership structure and are vital to its success. Members lend their expertise to the issues, programs, and governance that keep the association current and strategic in serving its members, the profession, and students.

  • NACAC's two special committees are: Admission Practices and Governance and Nominating. Due to the passage of proposed bylaw amendments voted on by NACAC members during the 2021 Annual Member Vote, these committes transitioned from standing to special committees.  

  • Ad hoc committees are convened to address specific tasks within a defined timeline.Currently, four ad hoc committees and one commission are active. They are listed below.

  • Other committees include the Rising Star Award Committee.

Two recently completed committees are the Ad Hoc Committee on Governance Restructuring and the Ad Hoc Committee on Leadership in College Admission.
