Full membership meetings are held twice each year: in the fall, during the annual conference of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), and in the spring, during the MACAC Spring Conference or MIDWest Conference. These meetings occur as part of the regular conference schedule, but are open to all MACAC members regardless of whether they are attending the full conference.
