C3X 2020 Annual
Conference & Expo

Do campus business differently, smarter, and with more impact on student success.

C3X convenes over 650 leaders from more than 300 higher education institutions and 200 NACAS Business Partners to exchange the knowledge and connections that are paramount to their work. Travel outside your regional boundaries to C3X and learn how other auxiliary leaders are meeting student’s evolving needs, providing services that outpace their desires, and boosting their institution’s ranking.


The health and safety of our members and business partners continue to be a top priority for NACAS. We are monitoring local, state, and federal guidelines on large gatherings and exploring all options for holding our event this fall. As it stands, we are still planning to host C3X in some format — whether it’s modified in-person, hybrid, or virtual. Registration for C3X and our add-on events is still open. More information will be shared in late summer/early fall on how we plan to move forward with C3X.

If you have questions about your registration, please contact us at info@nacas.org. We appreciate your patience and support as we weigh all of our options.

General Sessions

C3X artfully creates grand, signature moments through the delivery of our general sessions.

Our packed-house general sessions will unite hundreds of attendees under one roof to hear unforgettable stories that are sure to emotionally touch and professionally inspire all who listen. Content shared in C3X general sessions is the fuel that ignites on-site collaboration and the glue that bonds attendees – helping to foster priceless lifelong peer-to-peer relationships. Be sure to join us for our keynote address and TED Talk-style session, eXpress!

More information on eXpress coming soon!
