All about the Data

Applications now open to join the next SAGs Cohort!

Does your card program have a strategic plan? Are you aware of your office's strengths and opportunities for development? Are you ready to challenge yourself with an honest assessment of your card program?

The SAGs course will be a remote classroom-type experience providing cohort guidance, support, and feedback to assist card offices in completing the self-assessment guidelines.

Developed by NACCU members and staff, the SAGs are a unique and valuable assessment tool for campus card programs interested in increasing credibility, and developing value promotion, baseline assessment, and evidence to demonstrate that the card system is mission-critical.

Join us! Learn more and apply.

It's not too late to join the NACCU Book Club - get your book and register today!

Ready to broaden your management and leadership skills? The NACCU Book Club is for you! Our current 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 March 19th to talk about this and more! Read the book and register now to join us!

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.
