  • 2017 Spring Conference

The 2017 MACAC Spring Conference was brought to you by Hobsons, our Signature Sponsor!

That MACAC Professional Development Committee was excited to offer a comprehensive conference, preparing our members for today’s college admissions counseling.  In a time where there is a lot of change, unknowns, and some uncomfortable situations, coming together represents a positive move forward setting a foundation for what tomorrow’s higher education will look like.

Thank you to those who were able to join us and engaged with like-minded professionals as we come together and move towards a better tomorrow!
