Purpose

The Membership committee promotes membership within IACAC and NACAC. The committee is involved with the recruitment of new members and the retention of current members through a variety of activities.

Goals for 2017-2018

  • Continue to increase college and university, high school, community-based organization, independent counselor, and out-of-state membership, in an effort to increase access and education for the membership we support and the students they serve.
  • Expand the geographic footprint of our membership across the state.
  • Nurture current members and develop strategies to encourage new membership across the constituency.
  • Develop ties with graduate programs throughout the state to foster awareness of IACAC and grow future membership.
  • Deliberately identify leadership in IACAC that reflects the diversity of IACAC membership including, but not limited to, ethnic diversity, geographic diversity, diversity of experience (high school/college/independent), and institutional diversity (public/private).
  • Create a deliberate and effective plan to communicate with new members.
  • Become more inclusive by expanding membership to those with advocacy for transfer admissions.
