A Message from President Cassie Magesis


 My name is Cassie Magesis and I am honored to serve as NYSACAC’s president this year.

 During the course of this year, I am excited for our organization to continue to push college admission counseling in New York State to be more equitable, with increased access to opportunities for all 
 students and counselors in NYS.

 NYSACAC will continue to fight for a more just system of higher education for all students. The system is, in too many ways, broken. And it is not getting easier for our students to earn their college degree. We will continue to work so that all New Yorkers have the ability to get into and succeed in college.

We will work to make sure the programming that NYSACAC provides is more accessible to all those in our field - paying particular attention to those New Yorkers (and their students) who are not currently a part of our community.

We will continue to enrich the opportunities available to our members and their students, by focusing on how we can improve our existing programs and expand into new areas to fill unmet needs of our membership.

We would love to have you join us in this work! If joining one of our committees is of interest, please fill out this form or email [email protected].

Our members and executive board are some of the most committed to our students and our profession that I have ever met. It is a privilege to work alongside you.
