In case you missed it... what's new at NACCU

"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap
but by the seeds that you plant." - Robert Louis Stevenson

New conference experiences announced for NACCU 2020

Click the video preview below to hear about two exciting new session types from NACCU Executive Director Dawn Thomas! We'll be sharing more details soon, but we hope you are excited about new opportunities to learn and connect at NACCU!

If you haven't done so, please reserve your hotel room at the Renaissance Austin Hotel to ensure you secure a room at the host hotel - don't wait until the room block is sold out!

Our exhibit hall is filling up too! See the companies that have reserved booth space already here . Are all your vendors accounted for? If not, encourage them to attend!

All about the Data


Join us for the next meeting of the NACCU Book Club!

Ready to broaden your management and leadership skills? The NACCU Book Club is for you! Join us to read and discuss management and leadership books which will help you understand diverse perspectives and connect with ideas that may be relevant to your work and/or life.

Our NACCU Book Club selection is Delight Your Customers by Steve Curtin . Do your front-line customer service staff know the difference between their job function (knowledge and skills) and their job essence (motivation)? How does this distinction affect the way they interact with students and other card office customers and partners? Is it always necessary to “delight” your customers? Or should you focus on removing obstacles and making things easier for your customer? We’ll meet on Tuesday, February 25th to talk about this and more!

Register now to join us!

From Emily Messa, University of Houston:

"One of my best professional experiences was attending the NACCU Orlando Conference in 2017. I was in awe – there were so many excellent education sessions and the vendor showcase was fantastic. At the vendor showcase, my colleague Esmeralda Valdez and I noticed an opportunity to register to serve on a NACCU committee, and we both eagerly added our names to the list of applicants. Soon after, we were honored..." ( read more )

From William Bourlier, University of Southern California:

"My first ever conference experience was attending the NACCU San Francisco Conference in 2015. I learned so much during my first NACCU conference and attending the New Professional Institute. The Mentor Program was incredibly helpful to help guide me through the conference and make connections with other attendees. Through making those connections with other attendees, they recommended that I should volunteer for a committee. When the email came out for volunteers to serve on a NACCU committee..."
