President's Welcome

Welcome to NACAS Central

Welcome and thank you for visiting the NACAS Central web site. The NACAS Central Region strives to enrich the Auxiliary profession by offering educational opportunities, professional development workshops and providing an environment to cultivate peer networking connections for campuses within the 12-state Central Region.

NACAS Central is a unique group of professionals who along with the business partners serving campuses in the region seek to share experiences, build relationships and pursue innovation. No matter what your role is on your respective campus related to auxiliaries, improving services and the student experience is a likely goal we all share.

Please take this opportunity to learn more about us by browsing our web pages. I hope you’ll decide that you would like to join our professional association. We’ll look forward to having you actively involved through Regional Conference attendance or committee involvement – or both! After joining the Association, you will receive access to an all-inclusive membership directory. Feel free to explore our business partner directory to see the many businesses that offer their support, expertise and innovative products and services.

NACAS Central is proud to offer financial support to help defray the cost of attending a NACAS Central Regional conference or the CASP professional certification exam fee. For additional information please review the Central Conference Scholarship and CASP Scholarship application pages.

Contact Us
The NACAS Central 2017-2018 board of directors would like to encourage you to become actively involved in our organization, whether as an institutional member or as a business partner. Please consider participating on a committee or volunteering to help with a conference. If you have an innovative service on your campus you would like to showcase or if you would be interested in potentially hosting a drive-in workshop on your campus related to an auxiliary topic, we are always seeking opportunities to collaborate.

If any of our board members can be of any service, please do not hesitate to contact them or simply post a message in the NACAS Community directed to the Central region.
Thanks for your interest in NACAS Central. I’m pleased for the opportunity to serve as NACAS Central President for 2017-18 and I look forward to connecting with you.
