MACAC Member Committees

The MACAC Board meets four times a year, rotating meeting locations among member institutions. Board members also attend full membership meetings held twice each year: in the fall, during the annual conference of the National Association for College Admission Counseling, and in the spring, during the Spring Conference or Tri-State Conference. 

Joining a committee can be both a learning experience and a way to connect with your colleagues. We invite you to learn more about these committees and the work they do. Learn more about MACAC Leadership
