Welcome to NACAS West

Welcome to NACAS West

On behalf of the NACAS West 2023-2024 Board of Directors, I would like to welcome you and express our appreciation for your interest in NACAS West. Whether you are a current member, a prospective member, or one of our valued business partners, we look forward to strengthening our relationship with you and encourage you to get involved with the organization. If you are looking for support as you grow in auxiliary (or ancillary) services, you have come to the right place!

NACAS is an extraordinary organization that connects, educates and promotes campus commerce. All organizational efforts are to support auxiliary services professionals and business partners. NACAS West is the largest geographical region of NACAS, encompassing 14 U.S. states, four provinces and three territories in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Guam. Being a member of NACAS and NACAS West provides individuals with many excellent benefits and opportunities for professional engagement.


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, or participate in an online webinar, we offer opportunities to engage, connect, celebrate, and create solutions to assist you and your campus. Colleagues come from small community colleges, and larger universities, sharing a common purpose at NACAS. It’s a great place to share thoughts and ideas. Join the conversation!


The benefits offered to NACAS members will assist you in meeting the dynamic challenges we are all facing in a rapidly evolving landscape. A few of these benefits include the NACAS Marketplace, online education, the NACAS Lounge, career center, and conferences. These content-rich benefits provide auxiliary professionals with the information needed to address the complex situations occurring at their institutions. In addition, NACAS and NACAS West provides its members with the opportunity to collaborate with our dedicated business partners that are creating various solutions to address the current needs on our campuses.

Two noteworthy events are the annual C3X Conference and Expo typically held in the fall and the NACAS West CX conference typically held in the summer. These events are designed and delivered by our members and peers. NACAS West proudly sponsors scholarships each year to our annual West CX conference. Additionally, there are award and scholarship opportunities available through the national NACAS office. We hope you and your colleagues will join us for these fantastic experiences. In addition to the benefits already noted, NACAS offers its members an opportunity to demonstrate their expertise by becoming a Certified Auxiliary Services Professional. NACAS West offers scholarships that can cover the cost of the exam.
