Congratulations to all our newly elected members of the NJACAC Board! 

I am also excited to be passing the gavel of president to Michael Cartusciello from Adelphi University. We have worked together for the last year in preparation for this, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for NJACAC with him at the helm. It has been a pleasure to be President during one of the most nontraditional years that I can remember, and I am proud of the way our board has pulled together to support each other and our members during this time. I also would like to thank Larry Alterman who will be stepping off the Past Presidential role for all his help, guidance and leadership over the last 3 years. 

Our former Naviance User’s Group has been reformatted to a “Technology User’s Group” and will be rolling out our first PD event on May 20th at 10:00am. This event will focus on the SCOIR platform and will help to connect some users who are in the process of changing from another platform. Registration is free for members, so sign up today! We are also looking for sessions for next year to include Slate or other admissions platforms to connect users and share information on best practices. 

I am also impatiently awaiting the start of our first ever virtual conference May 24th and 25th! There is still time to register and take part in some professional development, reconnecting with old friends and even a superhero themed cocktail making class. 

I hope to see you all (or your superhero alter egos) in the next few weeks as we wrap the school year up either at the tech users group event or the conference and also want to remind you that the NACAC Conference will be coming up shortly in Seattle, WA. For those of you who are attending NACAC, I hope you can join us at our annual meeting during that conference  and look the part with the latest in NJACAC gear! Check out our Fan cloth sale for T-shirts, sweatshirts, and much more to rep the Garden State! Shop here: https://fancloth.shop/TQPRB.

Wishing you the restful summer you all deserve, 

Laurie Sieminski
President, NJACAC
