  1. Thanks again Rick, I applied for membership for AISAP and planning to attend the 2011 Summer Institute. I am a new kid on the block. It is great to know some great places to start to learn more about recruiting and retention.

    • Constance–You may want to check out a few other organizations that are specific to higher education. AISAP is for K-12 schools. The following are some that I am aware of that might be good for you to consider:

      NACAC — National Association of College Admissions Counselors (

      NACCAP — North American Coalition for Christian Admissions Professional (

      Both of these organizations have conferences. In fact, NACCAP has a conference this summer that might be a good fit for you.

      Let me know if I can help you further!
