For all of us committed to college admission counseling, the newsletter can be a great resource for professional development. Not to mention, you have the ability to express your views and see your ideas published in a professional document. We are constantly seeking news articles, blurbs, tidbits, and various forms of information to let our members know what is going on across New York State. So get involved and submit your ideas for publication. You can email a newsletter submission to [email protected].
