Hey Western ACAC, are we ready for over 6,000 of our friends to join us in San Diego in 2015?

Plans are well under way as Western ACAC and the San Diego Local Advisory Committee (LAC) prepare to host the National Conference.  The annual event will take place in San Diego October 1-3, 2015.  We will need hundreds of volunteers for the conference and are calling for volunteers now.

There are six committees that will work closely with NACAC to take on the planning and execution of the conference.   Consider your strengths and interests and join the committees that most interests you.

The Local Advisory Committee:

Chairs – Terri Devine and Ed Devine
Logistical Arrangements – Nicholle Wyatt and Peggy Hock
Hospitality – Jasmin Taylor and Rick Diaz
College Tours – Shannon Hutchinson and Jim Bonner
Counselor Preview Day – Bonnie Laughlin and Maureen Roadman
Registration – Nancy Olah and Nancy Caine
Special Events – Welcome Reception, Social – Gretchen Gleason, Julio Mata and Ann Rike

If possible, it is highly encouraged that you volunteer in Indianapolis this year for the same committee you will work on in San Diego.

Please check back for more exciting updates on the conference. We look forward to working with as many of you as possible, as it will take a large village to pull off the best possible event as we showcase WACAC and San Diego to the nation.

As an example of shining the light on issues in the West, an additional National College Fair will take place immediately following the Conference on Sunday, October 4, 2015.  This National Fair will have a specific focus on transfer students.  Transfer counselors and evaluators from across the nation will be invited to participate in the event. The fair will be open to high school students as well.

We hope you will join the team – volunteer now.

Happy back to school WACAC!
