The New England Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers was founded in 1947 and is a regional organization of AACRAO, the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. NEACRAO is a professional organization open to registrars and admissions officers in any accredited college, university, or other post-secondary institution in New England. The purpose of the Association, as noted in the bylaws, shall be to “promote the advancement of education, particularly higher education, and the professional enhancement of administrative areas of higher education pertaining to admissions, records, registration, and closely related functions such as financial aid and institutional research, among institutions of higher learning.”
The Executive Council of NEACRAO, consisting of Officers and Annual Conference Co-Chairs, works throughout the year with the Professional Committees to create the Annual Conference and Reverse College Day. Reverse College Day is fairly unique among regional associations and provides an opportunity for guidance officers to meet with member institutions as well as attend workshops on subjects of interest such as financial aid and college admissions. The Annual Conference offers members a day and a half of timely and informative sessions on topics ranging from professional responsibilities in our field to management issues and emerging technologies.
