A Message From Our President







Dear Colleagues, Friends, and PCACAC Members:

As we are in mid-September, I'm thrilled to extend a heartfelt shout-out to our entire PCACAC community. This month holds special significance as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, and I'm incredibly proud to serve as the first PCACAC Latinx/Hispanic president. This milestone reminds us of the rich diversity of cultures and backgrounds that make our affiliate vibrant and inclusive. ¡Feliz Mes de la Hispanidad!

In addition to this, we're gearing up for the highly anticipated NACAC Baltimore conference, kicking off this week. I want to express our deep appreciation to our dedicated Local Advisory Committee, whose hard work and collaboration have been instrumental in supporting NACAC's conference planning efforts over the last year. A special shout out to the LAC Co-Chairs, Jayne Fonash and Lisa Hill. Their commitment to excellence and showcasing what our region has to offer is a testament to our shared mission.

Our recent Board Meeting in August, held in College Park, MD on the University of Maryland’s campus, was both meaningful and productive, providing us with valuable insights and a jump start for our next full board meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, September 20 during the NACAC conference. We eagerly anticipate coming together as a full board to continue to collaborate on the work we do and to embark on goal setting and vision work for the upcoming year.

Lastly, I want to emphasize the importance of your presence and participation at our upcoming Membership Meeting on Thursday, September 21st, 6:00 pm, at the NACAC Conference. Your engagement is pivotal to our collective success, and your contributions are invaluable to our affiliate.

Thank you for being an integral part of PCACAC. We can’t wait to see many of you in Baltimore!

Warm regards,

Rosemary Martin Edwards
President, Potomac and Chesapeake Association for College Admission Counseling
