President's Welcome

Welcome to NACAS West

Welcome to NACAS West

NACAS is the leading organization supporting campus auxiliary 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.


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.  Whether you attend a conference, participate in an online webinar or utilize our recently announced NACAS Marketplace, we want to offer opportunities to engage, connect, and create solutions to assist you and your own campus.

Our flagship events this year are the annual C3X conference in Orlando, Florida, Oct. 14-17, 2018 and the NACAS West/Central CX conference in Chicago, Illinois, July 21-23, 2019.  Designed and delivered by our members and peers, we hope you’ll join us for these amazing experiences.  At this year’s C3X we will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of NACAS.  Additionally, we are excited to announce that the 2019 Institute for Leadership & Management will proceed the NACAS West CX Conference in Chicago, July 19-21, 2019.


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 institution to successfully navigate the fast-paced, ever-changing world of auxiliaries 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.  NACAS West also 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 welcome you to share your own insights and experiences with others through volunteering, presenting at conferences, and participating in online webinars and roundtables.  There are numerous committees and task forces in which one can get involved.
