Regional Forums

Each year NYSACAC partners with colleges and high schools throughout the state that serve as host sites for a professional development forum series addressing relevant topics and current trends in the field of college admission counseling. 

We are excited to announce that registration for this year’s NYSACAC Professional Development Forums is now open! Join us for a discussion on Mental Health Issues in Admissions: “Rethinking Demonstrated Need”.

We will talk about the ways counselors from both sides of the desk are assessing and addressing needs demonstrated by students at various stages from the admissions process through matriculation. Our panelists and guest speakers will be college admissions counselors, mental health specialists, and directors of college counseling. They will share information and explore ways we can best support our students and families in transitioning into college. Participants will be able to share in the conversation and leave with resources for your toolkit.

Forums will begin with check-in and continental breakfast at 9:00 a.m. and will conclude by 12:00 p.m. This year’s locations and dates are:

College of St. Rose: Monday, March 11th
University of Rochester:Wednesday, March 13th
Fordham University: Friday, March 22nd
St. Joseph’s Patchogue Campus: Friday, March 29th
SUNY Oswego Syracuse Campus: Friday, April 5th
D’Youville College: Friday, April 12th
