55th Annual PACAC Conference

The 2018 Conference will be held at Kalahari Resort & Convention Center, June 24-26!

For more than 50 years, our annual conference has been the highlight of the year for our members, who come together from all over the state to enjoy three days of:

  • Networking and camaraderie with fellow attendees
  • Our Third Annual College Tour for Secondary School, Independent Counselor, and Community Organization Members.
  • Educational sessions on best practices (with some sessions eligible for ACT 48 credit)
  • Activities including a 5K run/walk and golf tournament
  • Stellar food and dancing at our semi-formal gala
  • Awards and installation of leaders
  • Meeting with exhibitors who provide services to help you help your students

This year's Kick-Off Speaker is Jeff Schiffman, Director of Admission for Tulane University.  He was born and raised in the Washington, DC area but loves his adopted home in New Orleans.  Jeff spends much of his time traveling the world recruiting international students for Tulane but also loves coming back to the USA to recruit students from Southern California and leading his office.  In his free time, he enjoys anything related to health and fitness from snowboarding to indoor cycling and triathlons.

Our Keynote Speaker is Senator Andy Dinniman is a Democratic member of the Pennsylvania State Senate who has represented the 19th District since June 2006.  Known by the people of Chester County simply as “Andy,” Senator Andrew E. Dinniman is recognized as a leader in education and has been an advocate for communities and families through three decades in public service.  That vision and leadership led to his 2006 election and reelection in 2008, 2012, and 2016 to the Pennsylvania Senate.
