"I've been a MACAC member since 2001 and it has helped in many areas of my professional life. I’ve developed professionally and built lasting relationships with my colleagues in the organization. Since college counseling is a large part of our work as school counselors, it’s beneficial for myself and others at the high school to be on top of all admissions trends and partnerships with colleges. Without the knowledge and networking that I’ve done in MACAC, I know that I wouldn’t be able to succeed as well in my current position.
Chad Terry, Licensed School Counselor, Rosemount High School
"I began my involvement with MACAC in the PD committee. One of the senior admission counselors at my very first college that I worked for thought that it would be a wonderful professional development opportunity to help me grow my skills and network. It was challenging and fun because I was a amateur who got to see amazing leadership in action and it still is with our current board. I continued my involvement with MACAC as an interim PD chair and was fortunate enough to be selected to be a delegate as well. Currently I serve as the treasurer-elect on the cycle with Brian Jones, and Jeron Schmidt who are awesome colleagues and wonderful mentors.

"The work I do with MACAC has a direct impact on my professional development. In a time of decreasing budgets, having an organization orchestrate trainings and conferences within our state has allowed me to stay informed and connected on trends with a network of collegial support. This in turn allows me to best advise and advocate for the students I work with at my public two-year institution.
