Central Region - Resources





The value of involvement in NACAS Central is all about the rich experiences our members take away from participation in events. There is something to be said for the power of a handshake with a cool new colleague, an idea-generating hallway conversation with a speaker you just heard, or a hug from a familiar friend. We are dedicated to delivering these moments and making sure they are centered around topics you need to improve your daily work and enrich campus experiences at your institution.

Central CX




One of the most important factors in the success of our region is the participation and involvement of our membership. Without it, we couldn’t function. There are endless opportunities for involvement. Committee and volunteer opportunities include: Membership, Constitution & Bylaws, Nominations, and Central CX Annual Conference & Expo.
