The mission of the North American Association of Commencement Officers is to establish, foster and promote the highest possible standards of excellence for the creation and execution of commencement, convocation and other academic ceremonies through the education and professional development of individuals charged with leadership, planning, oversight and implementation at post-secondary educational institutions.

Our core purpose is to provide the structure and opportunity for the exchange of information through an established comprehensive network of resources, experts, industry professionals and academic colleagues from across the North American continent.

Our vision is to engage the broader academic community in the unique and valuable role that academic ceremonies play in defining, communicating and protecting the cultural values and traditions of an institution.
