September 2023

Haaaay NJACAC!

 Wow! We are halfway through September and hopefully you are getting settled into the 2023-2024 school year! Below please find updates on things happening within NJACAC. 


Our team has been keeping busy with the implementation of our new CRM and experiencing the growing pains associated with that transition.  Thank you for your patience and grace as we learn and grow together.  Please CLICK HERE to join or renew your membership.  At this point, we have a relatively good handle on our membership registration process and can answer most questions.  

For those signing up for an INSTITUTIONAL membership, one person will be responsible for creating the institutional account (and submitting payment).  Once payment is processed, you will be able to log into the institutional account and manage your roster.  Each person added to the roster will receive a separate email with information on how to create an account and log in.  I know this can be confusing, but do not hesitate to contact us with any questions–we are here to help!


September 21: NJACAC at NACAC.  Join us for Balimore inspired hor d’oeuvres and drinks (first one on us).  To register, please CLICK HERE . Thank you to Rutgers University for sponsoring this event!

 September 29: Virtual Workshop: A Day in the Life of an Independent Educational Consultant. 

During this session, we will learn how to work with an IEC, what they do day-to-day, and more.

There will be a presentation and time for Q and A.  CLICK HERE to register.

Thank you CARLOS CANO for your ongoing dedication to NJACAC, NACAC and our profession.  Carlos was on the slate of candidates for NACAC Board Service and while he was not elected, his commitment, passion, and service are invaluable!  We are proud of you!

 Thank you to MELISSA PETROSI, Membership Co-Chair, for your technical and coding skills as well as your support as we have transitioned to our new CRM.  

 Thank you the good folks at STRIVESCAN for your partnership and support of our Regional College Fair registration.  

 There are so many other wonderful professionals who have stepped up, in large and small ways.  Please know that I see you, appreciate your talents and support.  NJACAC is comprised of some of the most knowledgeable, fun, and compassionate professionals in the business.  It is never lost on me that it is a privilege to do this work and I hope we can all continue to pushing our association forward!
