NACRO thrives from the participation of its members, principally through its Board of Directors and five major standing committees, all of which benefit from a broad and diverse set of participants. If you are interested in joining a committee or obtaining further information, please contact the co-chairs.
In July 2012, the NACRO Board of Directors approved the following policies and procedures document.
This committee shall annually design, conduct and analyze the results of a survey that attempts to compare and contrast university corporate relations efforts (including holistic efforts, as well as more narrowly defined complementary work) at NACRO members’ institutions. A survey shall be conducted, analyzed and presented each year at the NACRO annual meeting.
Paul Sturm, Chair (Purdue University) and Kim Jacobs, Chair-elect (University of Florida)
Conference Program Committee:
This committee plans the Annual NACRO Conference and coordinates the individual Conference sessions, including selecting panel participants and providing moderators to coordinate each session. At least one of the Co-Chairs of this committee should be from the host University unless the site selected is not at an Institution or facility with a NACRO member.
Co-chairs: Tamara LaFrance (University of Washington) and Alex Pietsch (Washington State University)
This committee shall establish and promote the NACRO brand, develop and implement communication strategies, make recommendations on issues involving membership, and administer the membership program.
Adam Johnson, Chair (Michigan Technological University) and Adam Causgrove, Chair-elect (University of Pittsburgh)
Professional Development Committee:
This committee shall determine best practices for the education and professional development of NACRO members and utilize these best practices to design and deliver an educational and professional development program for NACRO membership.
