Affiliates

Home>Who We Are>Affiliates

NACAC and its 23 affiliate organizations share a common mission to serve and support the needs of the admission counseling professionals and the students they serve.  NACAC and the affiliate organizations work together to broaden geographic representations through partnership programs, activities and operations.

Affiliate organizations are led by presidents, presidents-elect and past presidents. These leaders serve two-year terms on the NACAC Affiliate Presidents Council – a forum that facilitates communication between NACAC and the affiliates. The Presidents Council is led by a Coordinator, elected by the council members. The Coordinator also serves as a member of the NACAC Board of Directors during a one-year term as Council Coordinator.
