An Invitation to Serve
Contribute in a meaningful way to new NACAC programs and policies
NACAC members are invited to apply to serve on four new ad hoc committees.
We welcome the contribution of your knowledge, experiences, and skills on short-term, high-impact committees that will help set the future direction of the association. Click below for descriptions of each of the four new committees:
- Ad Hoc Committee on Engaging Public High School Counselors
- Ad Hoc Committee on Serving Next Generation Admission Professionals
- Ad Hoc Committee on Developing Programs and Services for College Counseling and Admission Professionals at Rural and Small-Town Schools and Colleges
- Ad Hoc Committee on Reimagining the NACAC-Affiliate Partnership
Apply for committee service
Please complete the committee application by May 11. On the form, indicate which ad hoc committees you are interested in joining.
The application requires a resume or curriculum vitae and a written statement explaining the qualifications that will enable you to serve as an effective member of an ad hoc committee.
Committee members and chairs will be approved by the NACAC president in consultation with the NACAC Board of Directors. Selected committee members will be notified in May.
About the committees
The development of these first four ad hoc committees grew out of recommendations from the Ad Hoc Committee on Leadership in College Admission and insights gained from the CEO’s 2020 Listening Tour. The initial committee topics were selected by the NACAC Board of Directors, with additional committees planned for launch by early 2022. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to suggest future committee topics.
Each committee will be made up of 20 member volunteers selected through an application process. The committees may also include appointed individuals who are able to provide a diversity of viewpoints or special expertise. Two members of the NACAC staff will be assigned as liaisons for each committee.
Each committee will hold its first meeting in June. Most committee members will be asked to serve for 6-9 months with the option of extending the committee's work if necessary.
Given the urgency of the issues associated with reimagining the NACAC-Affiliate partnership, including decisions about the future of the Assembly and the role of delegates, that committee will work on an accelerated timeline. An initial report of each committee's progress will be presented during the 2021 NACAC National Conference in September.
