In August of 1986, the Mississippi Cooperative Education Association and the Mississippi College Placement Association merged to form one dynamic professional organization, the Mississippi Co-op and Placement Association (MCPA). In July 2000, the Association members voted to change the name to Mississippi Association for Colleges and Employers (MACE) to reflect changes in the Regional and National organizations.
MACE is affiliated with the Southern Association of Colleges and Employers (SoACE). This 600+ member association expands and enhances our professional resources. SoACE provides ongoing training and career enhancements through a wide variety of sources including workshops, newsletters, networking opportunities and an annual conference.
