President's Welcome

Greetings, and welcome to PACAC's website!  PACAC is a wonderful organization run by volunteers to provide services for those helping students seek postsecondary opportunities as well as supporting students and families directly.  

It's an exciting time to be part of PACAC:  our association continues to grow in many ways.  We continue to increase membership, are building a strong reputation with local and national leaders in terms of advocacy for access and affordability in higher education, and we are seeing more and more opportunities for professional development that are meaningful to our members and the varied work and needs that they have.  

PACAC continues to develop many great leaders.  One of the strengths of PACAC is the willingness of our members to get involved in their own backyard, across the commonwealth and across the country.  We have many committees that give you an opportunity to impact the work that we do.  We hope that you can be an active part of our association through one of these committees and share your talents and voice!

With over 1200 members we are a strong and healthy organization that can provide outstanding opportunities.  If you are not a member, we encourage you to join here.  Involvement in PACAC has changed my life both personally and professionally through strong networking and professional development opportunities, as well as being an engaging community of support and service to others.

We hope to see you in the sweetest place on earth for our 56th annual conference June 23-25 2019 at The Hershey Lodge, and at any of our outstanding professional development programs and college fairs between now and then.  We look forward to sharing our purple and gold pride with you.

On behalf of the Executive Committee, I encourage you to learn, share, and grow with us.  You can find the answers to many questions that you may have on the various pages of our website, but if you need help or have thoughts to share, please reach out to any of our dedicated leaders.
