I am at home working remotely for one more month before returning to my office at Iowa State. As I sit here, I can’t help but wonder what chairs you all are sitting in right about now. Have we all been playing musical chairs? Every time we seem to find some rhythm, things are on the move again. I look forward to this upcoming boomerang year when we can plan, prepare, and participate in college admission counseling in more familiar ways again. I don’t want the music to stop, but I’d like to pick a song. And I think we all want more people to have a seat at the table and a voice in the choir.

The virtual MIDWest conference was a hit! Attendees experienced a candid keynote, engaging sessions, and nice opportunities to connect with one another. I encourage you to consider future opportunities to engage with Iowa ACAC through Admissions Counselor University (ACU), member meet-ups, Visit The Hill, and social media. As Tara Winter shared during our state meeting, the NACAC election process has changed to extend voting to more members. I echo her request that we all invest our time in vetting and voting for our future NACAC representatives in this changing landscape. 

Because of outstanding guidance from Tara, Tom, and many others, we are poised for a bounce-back year. I am humbled to take on the role of President of Iowa ACAC and do so knowing I have many experts to lean on. You can trust that our association is in good hands with the executive board, committees, and our membership as a whole. I will continue to look to the next generation of professionals as well as our veterans in the field for inspiration and input.

Thank you,
Jaclyn Tungesvik
President, Iowa ACAC
