The Position

This role in the governance structure involves duties at both the national and state levels. Delegates traditionally have a key role in helping to shape the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and New York State Association for College Admission Counseling (NYSACAC) policies and initiatives. As elected officers of the  NYSACAC Executive Board, Delegates help perform the business of the Association, and they provide resources for the larger constituency of member concerns. Delegates are voting members of the Executive Board. In addition, delegates who are not currently serving as co-chairs will support a particular NYSACAC initiative or committee during every year of their board service, as determined by the Presidents.  

The term of office is three years, and Delegates must be voting members of NACAC and members of NYSACAC. A summary of Delegate responsibilities is listed in the NYSACAC Policies and Procedures Manual.

Commitment

The term of office is three years, and Delegates must be voting members of NACAC and members of NYSACAC. The commitment as described in the NYSACAC Bylaws is as follows:

  1. Attendance at NYSACAC Executive Board Meetings
  2. Attendance and participation in the NYSACAC Annual Conference
  3. Attendance at some of the Regional Forums
  4. Acting as a resource person for a specific NYSACAC committee
  5. Serving as a liaison to designated regions of the state
  6. Contributing to the Delegates Report of Assembly activities that is sent to the membership
  7. Representing the membership at the National Assembly
  8. Meeting in caucus with the Chief Delegate prior to the National Assembly or when needed
  9. Participating in all the required voting and discussion sessions associated with the National Assembly

Benefits of Service:
The rewards of volunteer service to the organization can be significant, benefiting members both personally and professionally. Information specific to the school-to-college transition is shared, and leadership skills are developed.
