Dear NAACO friends and colleagues,

NAACO has always been a place where we find our colleagues from across the continent who understand our unique jobs as planners of commencements and convocations. Today, that is true more than ever as we find innovative ways to celebrate our graduates.

I want to share an update to outline the measures that NAACO is taking to support our members through the rapidly changing circumstances of COVID-19. These initiatives can be found in our members-only section: COVID-19 Resources

  • Ongoing discussion in the forum to ask and answer questions on graduation planning
  • Regional meetings hosted on Zoom to share information and support in person
  • A live member survey that tracks the decisions for graduation planning by institutions
  • A summary of resources by our sponsors and corporate partners

I’d like to thank all our members for their contributions to make NAACO a great resource for all. In particular, I’d like to thank our volunteers (regional directors, committee members and my fellow board members) for their dedication and hard work in these incredibly busy times.

If you are interested in joining us as a member so you can access these benefits and more, please visit for further information.

Take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Best regards,
NAACO Board of Directors
