NACAS Central/East CX

The NACAS Central/East CX conference provides the premier exchange of campus-centric ideas, solutions, and connections to your regional area. Designed and delivered by your own professional peers, this event gives you the best opportunity to isolate your needs and nurture your relationships. At Central/East CX, you can easily seek out other campus service leaders that have similar interests, requirements, and visions for how to empower campus communities.


Central/East CX will feature educational sessions, keynote speakers, networking experiences, and an exhibit hall. Content will be regionally focused across operational areas that can help event attendees develop skills in areas such as management, leadership, innovative technology, revenue generation, and sustainability. Together with your regional peers, you will be newly inspired and energized to put student success at the center of your work on campus.

Business Partner Expo

The Expo is the place where your regional business partners come together to collaborate, create, and explore new ways to create customized campus services that are unique and meaningful to each school’s community. During Expo hours, attendees will be able to connect with business partners in person and explore their services.
