"The NJACAC Annual Conference will be held from May 21-23, 2023 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City.  We have recently opened our Call for Proposals.


The New Jersey Association for College Admission Counseling annual conference attracts approximately 300 school counselors (public and private), directors of school counseling, college/university counselors, recruiters, deans and directors, independent educational consultants, graduate students, educational organizations, and community-based organizations focused on college counseling.  The theme for this year's conference is "Setting the Stage for Collective Success."


We welcome school counselors from across the state to submit session proposals to enhance our professional development.  Guidelines, suggested hot topics and the submission form are below:
