On the Road

On the Road with NACAS East sessions are presented by auxiliary professionals near you. Our goal is to have sessions throughout the region within a two- to three-hour drive. Bring another person from your institution, tour the facility or operation, grab some lunch, and then participate in a discussion concerning the area of interest. You can be back on your campus easily within the course of a work day.

Would you like to show off a recent renovation? How about that new food truck you just put into service? Have a great sustainability program? We would love for you to share whatever it is with your colleagues. We are seeking On the Road with NACAS East programs for 2018/2019. We need programs throughout the region, so don’t hold back.

Watch for additional information on upcoming professional development opportunities at

If you are interested, please feel free to contact Mary Lieto, Executive Director of Auxiliary Services at Pace University – Pleasantville/Briarcliffe, to schedule a program for your campus.

Mereese Ladson Diversity Scholarship

The Ladson Diversity Scholarship was established in 2005 in honor of the late Mereese Ladson, Controller at Brooklyn College (CUNY). Ms. Ladson was a President and long-time leader of NACAS East and a great friend to the entire association. Ms. Ladson’s professionalism, commitment to inclusiveness for all, and leadership were sources of inspiration to our members. Visit the NACAS Foundation website to donate to the Mereese Ladson Fund or learn more about the scholarship.
