Government Relations Committee

The Government Relations Committee works to keep the membership updated on government issues related to secondary and post-secondary education.  We work to establish connections with state and federal legislatures to advocate for our positions and beliefs.  The committee stays in contact with NACAC's Coordinator of Government Relations to aid our efforts and ensure ours are in line with the National Membership.
