Due to the rapidly developing COVID-19 outbreak, the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, the travel restrictions at organizations within our affiliate, and other circumstances outside of our control related to COVID-19, NJACAC has made the decision to cancel our Annual Conference planned for May 17-19.  

We have been looking forward to this conference and have been diligently planning for the last year.  We know that many of you were looking forward to attending, presenting, and being part of this event. Your involvement in NJACAC is greatly appreciated and your safety is our first priority. Thank you all for your work to keep yourself, your students, and your institutions safe during this time.  

NJACAC continues to be committed to connecting our members through professional development events. We will be exploring options for providing these professional development opportunities in new formats.  At this time we are still moving forward with our Basics Event this summer as well as our 10th Annual Camp College program. Please reach out if you would like to volunteer for these programs. If you have already registered for the event, stay tuned for an email with more information. Please be patient as we work to unwind the conference and all the aspects which need to be canceled. If you have applied for a counselor grant, we ask that you apply again next year! Our funds for this are dependent on grants that are issued annually, and are not guaranteed. 

We will however, continue on with our scholarship and counselor recognition program for this year, and hope to present these in an online format. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out.

If you have already registered for the event, stay tuned for an email with more information. We are working to ensure that refunds are processed as quickly as possible.  Please be patient as we work to unwind the conference and all the aspects which need to be canceled. If you have submitted payment for the conference, please complete this Conference Refund Form.
