NACAC members approved bylaws enabling a new membership structure at the 2019 Annual Membership Meeting. The new model, which will become effective in membership year 2021, will open NACAC membership to a wider audience by offering increased membership options for both institutions and individuals.
Under the new structure, institutional membership will permit colleges, universities, secondary schools, CBOs, and other organizations to enroll their entire staffs, allowing professionals at every rung of the career ladder to receive the benefits of membership.
An individual membership option will also be available, providing professionals at both the secondary and postsecondary levels with access to the full array of NACAC benefits, including the ability to vote on bylaws, to serve as an Assembly delegate, to run for elected office, and to receive member rates for NACAC programs, services, and events such as the national conference. Independent educational consultants and retired professionals will be also be eligible for this category.
In addition, a new, lower-cost “associate” membership that provides access to all NACAC’s digital resources—including online publications, the Bulletin, Today in College Admission, and the digital version of The Journal of College Admission—will also be available. Associate membership does not include voting privileges or member discounts to NACAC programs and events. Professionals at both the secondary and postsecondary levels will be eligible for this category, as will students, nonaffiliated professionals, affiliate staff, and university system and school district staff.
More detailed information about the new membership model will be available soon!
