4th annual school counselor summit

August 1, 2019  - Oakland University


MACAC is excited to offer our 4th Annual School Counselor Summit! The Summit is a one-day professional development opportunity for school counselors and IEC's and seeks to prepare counselors for the year ahead in college admission counseling.

Join us on the beautiful campus of Oakland University to explore and discuss hot topics in the profession, connect with school counselors from across the state, and potentially earn SCECH credits. 


This event is currently at its capacity of 60 attendees.  If you would like to have your name placed on a waitlist, please send an email to Zay Reynolds, MACAC Executive Assistant.  As registrants indicate they can no longer attend, the waitlist will be used in the order of placement to notify potential attendees that a space has become available.
