WACAC Share, Learn and Connect Programs 2015
The Western Association for College Admission Counseling (WACAC) is pleased to present the 2015 Share, Learn, Connect (SLC) program schedule. The SLC events are designed to provide an affordable professional development opportunity for individuals working with students in their transition to college. This program is focused on the needs of public high schools, transfer programs, community based organizations, and under-resourced independent schools. We hope that you'll consider attending one or more of the four programs this spring!
