President's Welcome

Welcome to NACAS West

Welcome to NACAS West

NACAS is the leading organization supporting campus auxiliary and ancillary services.  NACAS West has much to offer and the NACAS West Board is here to help.  We are excited for the upcoming year and look forward to share experiences, build relationships, and grow the programs, resources and benefits offered to our members in the western region of the United State, Canada and other countries.


NACAS West is growing and it’s our members that drive the association.  We are excited about the recent changes that NACAS has experienced and the direction we are heading.  NACAS and NACAS West’s success relies entirely on its members’ participation.  Whether you attend a conference, volunteer at a conference or on a committee, participate in an online webinar or utilize our NACAS Marketplace, we want to offer opportunities to engage, connect, celebrate and create solutions to assist you and your own campus.

Our premier events this year are the annual C3X Conference and Expo in Phoenix, Arizona, November 3-6, 2019 and the NACAS West CX conference in Vancouver, BC, Canada May 31 – June 2, 2020.  Designed and delivered by our members and peers, we hope you and your fellow colleagues will join us for these amazing experiences.


NACAS West continues to partner with the national NACAS office in an effort to bring you, our valued NACAS West members, the tools and resources necessary for you and your institute to successfully navigate the fast-paced, ever-changing world of auxiliary services in higher education.

Within this website and through the vast network of peers and business partners available to you through NACAS West, you will find valuable opportunities to expand your knowledge and expertise.  We also offer opportunities for our members to share their experiences and accomplishments from their home schools at regional and national levels.  NACAS West also proudly sponsors scholarships each year to our annual West CX conference.  Additionally, there are award and scholarships opportunities available through the national NACAS office.

NACAS offers its members an opportunity to demonstrate their expertise by becoming a Certified Auxiliary Services Professional. The CASP exam is offered annually at the national C3X conference.  NACAS West offers scholarships which can cover the cost of the exam.

The NACAS West board and I are looking forward to working with you.  We also wish you and your institutions a very successful school year.
