Professional Development

The Professional Development Committee seeks to design and implement programs for TACAC members that promote learning and networking. It is our goal to have informative and relevant programs that provide higher education admission and secondary school professionals with opportunities to learn, grow, and remain energized by the important work that we do.

Programs and Events:

  • Admission and College Counseling Institute (ACCI) - Designed for high school counselors and new college admission professionals, this residential program is TACAC's most comprehensive professional development experience, providing sessions that cover topics to train and educate professionals in the field of college admissions and college admission counseling.
  • Drive In & Zoom In Workshops - Day-long programs or robust Zoom workshops that provide high school and CBO counselors with relevant programming on college admission and application topics led by seasoned admission professionals.
  • Middle Management Institute (MMI) - An annual conference for seasoned admission professionals who have a genuine passion to grow professionally within the field of higher education. Attendees may have varying roles, including some leadership and supervisory responsibilities within their offices.
  • Webinars - Join us throughout the year as TACAC brings you dynamic speakers and interesting topics. Whether you are on the high school or college side, we have webinars to benefit you. Take part in professional development from the ease and comfort of your own office.
