Welcome to the North American Association of Commencement Officers (NAACO)

Where Success and Partnership Commence

As the standard bearers of an academic tradition reaching back a thousand years, the college and university commencement professionals who comprise NAACO’s membership plan the commencement and convocation ceremonies at institutions of higher learning throughout North America.

NAACO serves as a unique peer community of knowledge and camaraderie for commencement and convocation officers. This professional association is a catalyst for exchanging ideas, sharing solutions and advancing members’ event management expertise and skills.

Our association is supported financially through membership dues and the generous backing of leading commencement and convocation service providers. Membership is open to accredited, post-secondary institutions of higher learning.
