President's Welcome

Welcome to NACAS East

Greetings, NACAS East members and prospective members.

Welcome to East Region, comprised of 13 U.S. states, 6 Canadian provinces, and the United Kingdom and Ireland. We are international in reach, generous by nature, and place a premium on professional education.

I hope you’ll spend some time exploring the links on these web pages and reading about all the great initiatives and services.  NACAS East is a unique group of professionals who, along with our business partners, seek to share experiences, build relationships, and pursue innovation. No matter what your role on your campus, improving services and the student experience is a goal we all share. This website is a way for you to access these resources.

Seven years ago, my department was recruited to cater an East conference banquet.  Little did I know that accidental introduction to this organization would ultimately yield myriad benefits for my campus and result in my passionate support for this organization. You, too, can share in these benefits. Participation is the key. Take that first step.

  • Attend an On the Road event, East’s one-day educational series, put on for members, by members. Better yet, volunteer to showcase your campus and host an event. We strive to have three On the Road events each academic year; we’d like to be on your campus.
  • Apply for an education grant. East Region sponsors a full ride to C3X (NACAS national conference) and CX (East regional conference), as well as CASP support.
  • Contact your Board of Director members. Read their bios; become familiar with those who represent you.

With NACAS and NACAS East you have a professional organization full of talented and giving peers who will readily share their insight and knowledge.  It is a volunteer-driven association and we rely on one another.

Consider volunteering. Whether the task is small or large, once you start, you’ll want more.
