Membership Benefits

TACAC is an organization dedicated to the ongoing support and development of all professionals in our field whether you are a seasoned professional (check out our Middle Management Institute) or brand new to college admissions counseling (our Admissions and College Counseling Institute is just for you!). 

We develop our members as leaders through our Leadership Development Institute and give them the tools they need via our Diversity Peer Educator program to be active participants in ally-ship and to be a part of a community of learners that support understanding, respect, and appreciation for all people.

We also enable admission professionals who work with students from under-represented populations and who work in a setting adversely affected by budget cuts or limitations to participate in professional development opportunities through our Fellows Program

As a member of TACAC you will:

  • have exclusive benefits such as access to webinars, a personal continuing education credit transcript, discounted registration rates and college fair rates, and more!

  • receive support from the network of professional friendships you’ll develop in TACAC. Experienced counselors often become mentors for counselors both informally and through our mentorship program.

  • expand your professional expertise by reading TACAC publications, attending Drive-In Workshops (in person in all regions of the state and virtual) and our annual conference

  • find answers to questions on financial aid, students’ rights in the admission process, ethics and other issues affecting the smooth transition from secondary to postsecondary education.

  • be recognized as a counselor who is interested in the future of our profession and as a person who has expressed a willingness to exchange ideas with other counselors

  • have an impact beyond your own institution. Your involvement will add a new dimension to your job, enhance your professional development, and perhaps help you move ahead in your career. 

  • be able to contribute by participating in committee activities which affect your profession and the students you serve.
