NACAS Talks

At C3X, the most thought-provoking concepts and inspiring real-life examples of campus solutions are shared by members of the NACAS community. Every day these thought leaders are thinking differently, borrowing strategies from other industries, and breaking free from perceived limitations that once hindered them. Now you can learn about these alternative perspectives at NACAS Talks.

NACAS Talks features multiple 10-minute presentations from industry leaders who challenge attendees to find new, progressive, and sometimes unconventional ways to run their auxiliary service departments. Learn about applied innovations in bookstores, food services, and facilities, and how these distinct operations contribute to the health of the institution as a whole and enrich the full campus experience.
