MACAC’s Annual Admission Counselor Institute (ACI) will be held on July 24 - 25 at Minnesota State University, Mankato. ACI is a great opportunity for college admission counselors who have completed one or two admission cycles (or less) and are seeking information about college counseling. Some prior year topic sessions have included Financial Aid, Working with High School Counselors, Advancing as a Professional, Working with Diverse Student Populations, talking about Standard Practices, Territory Management and more. Please encourage your colleagues or any new hires to register.

The Professional Development committee recognizes the intense training their home institutions offer, so this is a supplement to that training, touching on and reinforcing your training and providing you with tools and resources to ensure a successful first or second year of recruitment.

The deadline to register is Monday, July 17.
