As a new recruitment year begins, much excitement lays ahead for a great year in our organization. This year’s call for SUNYCAP membership is incredibly important, as it shows our commitment to not only SUNY but also to each other. SUNYCAP allows us to collaborate and exchange ideas to make the admission teams at our individual learning centers even more prepared for the future. It is a venue for us to have an organization devoted to the issues and concerns facing SUNY college admissions professionals today. In addition, our commitment to students, the school counseling community and our state is immense. It is important for us to share ideas and continuously develop. 

We know the strengths that our 64 schools individually have, but together we are a global powerhouse that impacts the world! We owe so much of our strengths to each other and our profession, and SUNYCAP’s open exchange of ideas and professional development will only make us stronger.

Benefits that a SUNYCAP membership provides:

  • Professional development activities including the annual SUNYCAP conference and SUNYCAP Leadership Institute.
