Meet Your NACCU Volunteers: Esmeralda Valdez

June 24, 2019


This is the latest installment of the NACCU series highlighting our association volunteers. NACCU provides programs and services to our members, many which would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of our volunteer leaders. Volunteers, whether they are a committee member, a Board member, or an onsite volunteer at a conference, are all important in making NACCU volunteer-driven programs an exceptional experience for our card industry peers. 


Campus Card Information:


Name: Esmeralda Valdez

School: University of Houston, Houston, TX

Professional Role: Executive Director, University Services


Volunteer Role: Member, Awards Committee


What is your role at your institution?

I'm responsible for the strategic direction and management of campus card services, copy, print and mail services, sustainability, and a performance center.


Where was the first NACCU conference you attended?

My first NACCU conference was in Orlando, Florida in 2017. I was blown away by the breadth and depth of the association and its amazing community!


What is your favo(u)rite thing about volunteering with your NACCU committee?

My favorite thing about being a member of the NACCU committee is being among a group of amazing professionals that care and serve others and the association. I've learned so much from my committee members, and have formed lasting friendships.


What show are you binge-watching right now?

I am currently watching 13 Reasons Why. It is a very powerful show that is shedding some light on mental illness.


What is your go-to coffee / tea order?

I would have to say green tea with ginseng.


What is your favo(u)rite memory from when you were a student?

My favorite memory as a student is my time spent in the library. I love the smell of books, and being in the library provided a quick escape from my busy school/work/home life.


What is one thing that would surprise people about you?

I have won awards for music, and I am slowly getting back into drumming by taking some refresher lessons to build my chops back up.



We hope you have enjoyed learning about Esmeralda! Please look for a new edition of "Meet Your NACCU Volunteers" in a few weeks.
