ACCIS is thrilled to announce that the 2014 ACCIS Summer Institute will be at Vanderbilt University. Institute attendees will also visit Sewanee: The University of the South and Belmont University.
Based on feedback from ACCIS members, we avoided Father’s Day weekend, so the dates of the 2014 ACCIS Summer Institute are Sunday, June 22 through Wednesday, June 25, 2014. Ed Graf, Director of College Counseling at Isidore Newman School, is the 2014 ACCIS Summer Institute Director.
I hope this email is met with a flurry of out-of-the-office replies, meaning many of you are still enjoying summer. For those of you back (or still) in the office, I hope that you’re gearing up for a new senior class and a new year in the ACCIS fold. My own year begins in awe of the role that I’ve stepped into in this association, and with gratitude to all of those who balance tireless work for ACCIS with ever demanding day jobs. It cannot be said enough how much thanks we owe to the leadership of Eric Monheim (St. Mark’s School) over the last three years. To underscore the sizeable shoes left to fill, the job Eric had was wisely divided into three positions going forward, and I am lucky to be joined by Marie Bigham (Greenhill School) and Gavin Bradley (Pace Academy) as vice-chairs. ACCIS is also led by a sage and strong Board of Trustees, under the leadership of Chair Sam Moss (Darlington School) and Chair-elect Tamar Adegbile (Harvard-Westlake School). It’s going to be a great year.
