The charge of the Winter Institute Committee is to provide an educational forum for new school counselors, college counselors and college admissions counselors. The Institute is a one day intensive program that brings new admissions professionals together for networking and discussion with seasoned professionals. Through lectures, workshops, and round table discussions, the mentors guide discussions with the participants and share their expertise to provide a foundation of knowledge in topics that touch on all aspects of our profession. The one day professional development event is designed to complement other NYSACAC opportunities (such as Summer Institute) and provide another opportunity to support new school counseling and admissions professionals and assist with building support networks.  A summary of co-chair responsibilities is listed in the NYSACAC Policies and Procedures Manual.
