Professional Development through Annual Conference, Articulation, Webinars & Drive-In Workshops
Many of our cornerstone events of the organization offer insight to recruiting and advising students and developing your professional knowledge for your own goals. National organizations and panelists from ACT, CollegeBoard, Ohio Board of Regents, OSCA, NCAA and OASFFA provide information on demographic trends, policy revisions, testing updates, rules updates and federal regulations at a minimal cost for members. The webinar series is offered in partnership with KY ACAC and IN ACAC is easily accessible to you right from your office. When you only have one day, consider attending a drive-in workshop for a professional and personal boost!
Grant Funding for ONLY for members
If your district does not reimburse you for events, workshops, bus tours or even national conferences, then apply for a grant through OACAC. We have been able to provide grant funding to attend local, regional and national events including the NACAC National Conference. A $20.00 investment might be worth a $1000.00 trip to a conference or $350 to cover your bus tour expenses to visit colleges and universities.
