Annual Meeting & Reverse College Day
Each year, NEACRAO sponsors a day and a half long conference for the benefit of its members, of which there are over 1,000. The Annual Meeting includes over 25 sessions, a keynote speaker, the annual business meeting and election of officers, greetings and information from AACRAO and a social event, as well as an exhibit area for members to converse with vendors and discuss the latest technology. The Annual Meeting moves to a different New England location every few years to make travel easy for all members. Recent meetings have been held in Newport, Rhode Island; Quincy, Massachusetts; Nashua, New Hampshire, Marlborough, Massachusetts, and Portland, ME.
NEACRAO also produces a unique function known as Reverse College Day. This day, usually the day before the Annual Meeting, brings High School Guidance Counselors and College Admissions Officers together for a chance to exchange information. A “college fair” format in the morning allows colleges and guidance counselors time to talk and exchange information. Workshops for the Guidance Counselors are also run throughout the day on topics relevant to admission to higher education.
