IACAC Executive Board Meeting

- Membership: Current membership numbers are slightly behind last year’s numbers, committee is working on a calling campaign to call past members whose membership has lapsed.
- Chief Delegate: There might be a possible resolution to the Department of Justice investigation into the Code of Ethics and Professional Practices. Statement from NACAC:
- “This has been an extraordinary year for the association. The challenge to our Code of Ethics and Professional Practices by the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice has struck a nerve. The association has been required to reflect deeply on our historical core values to protect the best interest of students we all serve, while honoring our diverse institutions and their recruitment practices. The legal debates, compliance with DOJ requirements for documentation, and careful communication with the membership required unprecedented expenditures of time and financial resources. We remain hopeful this will be resolved in early 2019.”
