Membership Benefits

By being a member of IACRAO, you have access to a network of over 500 professionals from 100 institutions throughout the State of Illinois. Your membership provides access to an email listserve to ask questions about best practices, transfer credit, compliance, FERPA, software systems and much more.

Here are some benefits available with your membership:

  • IACRAO listserve. This is a great way to ask other association members about best practices,  student issues, get updates from the Board, or gather information to take back to your institution. The listserve is a great way to collaborate and share with others. Simply send an email to this address [email protected]. In order to send and receive messages, you need to be a member of IACRAO. 
    Note: If you are subscribed to the listserve and are not receiving emails, please check with your IT department to make sure MemberClicks is Whitelisted. Here is a resource on how to Whitelist MemberClicks.

  • A mentoring program designed to provide a support system for new professionals in the field. We believe mentoring is a fantastic way to share knowledge and experience. It is also another great way to network in higher education.

  • Attend the Annual Conference. This is usually held in late October and only for members. This two and half day conference has sessions devoted to best practices, transfer/articulation, or compliance in the areas of admissions, registration, records and enrollment management.The Annual Conference provides an opportunity for members to meet with peers and associates to discuss common problems and to share successes and concerns. The Annual Business Meeting is held during the Annual Conference. We also find time to unwind and have some fun!

  • Spring District workshops are for member institution staff who provide direct service to students who do not often receive professional development. There is no cost to attend this workshop.

  • IACRAO's newsletter, The Chronicle, is published three to four times per year. The Chronicle covers the organizational activities as well as individual accomplishments of IACRAO members, and provides updates from the Executive Board. The Chronicle is provided to all organizational members as a mechanism of communication to the membership.

For the price, your IACRAO membership will be money well spent!
