Benefits of Attending

PNACAC serves the states of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington by promoting ethical standards and providing resources to our members and colleagues who guide and empower students as they prepare for college admission. Our goal is to ensure every student in the Pacific Northwest has access to informed, engaged, and ethical college admission professionals in public and independent secondary schools, community-based organizations, community colleges and public and independent four-year colleges and universities.

The PNACAC Annual Conference is our organization’s premier professional development opportunity bringing together individuals who share our goal.
