President's Welcome


Welcome to NACAS Central

On behalf of the NACAS Central 2023-2024 Board of Directors, I would like to extend my gratitude for your engagement with both the NACAS Central Region and NACAS Association. As with many of our campuses, change continues as we look to enhance our engagement both internally and externally as well as the changes taken place within the NACAS organization. I highly encourage you to take a moment to see where the association is headed and how you can be a part of its growth.

It is my privilege to serve as your 2023-2024 Central Region President this upcoming year. It is my commitment to continue to enhance and build relationships with our members and business partners with professional development and other opportunities available through the NACAS. It is important we stay connected as we navigate the future of auxiliary services on
our campuses.

On behalf of the NACAS Central Board of Directors, I would like to encourage you to take some time to explore the benefits of your membership. Did you know that you have access to:

● Online Education Offerings
● NACAS MarketPlace
● NACAS Lounge
● Career Center
● College Services Magazine
● Awards & Scholarships

Volunteers are key to the success of our region. I urge you to get involved. We want to hear your thoughts on how we can enhance the NACAS mission of advancing the campus experience. There are many great opportunities to volunteer:

● Serve on Boards and Committees
● Contribute to the College Services Magazine, Online Education, and Resource Library
● Volunteer at CX and C3X

The NACAS Foundation is a non-profit organization that improves the quality of life for students and supports affordability in higher education by funding grants and scholarships, professional development programs, and research initiatives for auxiliary service professionals, students, and institutions. Visit the NACAS Foundation website for more information and learn how you can pay it forward.

The NACAS Central Board of Directors and I, look forward to meeting and engaging with you during the next year. Keep a lookout for more information regarding future events. C3X is right around the corner we hope to see you there or any of the other NACAS events!

Best regards,

Dr. Anita Hicks
