The National CCAA at NACAC

2016 NACAC in Columbus

Our annual Catholic Colleges Reception has proven to be the premier event at the NACAC Conference, with over 1,000 admissions officers and counselors attending each year.  This is a wonderful opportunity for counselors to meet and to network with admissions officers from our member institutions while enjoying food and drink at a fun, professional development event.  

The 2016 reception will be held on Friday, September 23, 2016, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio.  Click here for more information and to register. 

A ticket is required for entry, and the reception is only for high school counselors, independent counselors, transfer counselors from two-year/community colleges, and admission staff from National CCAA member schools. 

What counselors and National CCAA member sponsors are saying

“It is the one social at NACAC I make sure to attend every year.  A great opportunity to foster relationships with NCCAA members.” – Nicholle Wyatt, Head College Counselor, Academy of Our Lady of Peace, CA 

“I attend NACAC every other year due to budget restrictions in my school and the Catholic Colleges Reception is one of my favorite events at NACAC!  I love the opportunity to see colleagues from Catholic Colleges around the US and catch up, hear a great band and last year, see the Stanley Cup! I usually RSVP the minute I get the invitation to be sure I get a ticket…this is THE event at NACAC to attend.” – Ann Kjorstad, College and Career Counselor, Academy of the Holy Angels, MN

“Each year, the National CCAA Reception is the place to be at NACAC!  I have literally had folks standing at my fair table asking for just a single ticket to get in. The Catholic University of America is proud to help sponsor this great event that brings together counseling professionals for a night of networking and fun! Being able to connect with friends and colleagues, as well as meet new people, makes sponsoring this event totally worthwhile.” – Christine Mica, Dean of University Admissions, The Catholic University of America (DC)

“The opportunity to support an organization that promotes the value of Catholic higher education is something the University of Portland sees as a great investment.” – Jason McDonald, Dean of Admissions, University of Portland, OR
