The 2017–18 cohort of NACUBO Fellows celebrated the closing of their program year at the NACUBO 2018 Annual Meeting in Long Beach, Calif. Read also “SoCal Collaborations”. 

Over the course of the year, the 15 NACUBO Fellows worked together and with higher education leaders to deepen their knowledge of business management, institutional communications, and the CBO role. The Fellows also enhanced their leadership skills as they learned about the core competencies needed to succeed as CBOs. 

For their culminating project, the Fellows collaborated in small groups to address an institutional challenge in the form of a case study, and prepared solutions for presentation to an “executive council” that included four current and former NACUBO board members. 

NACUBO Members Approve Changes to Bylaws

At the primary representatives meeting on July 22, 2018, the NACUBO membership approved changes to the association bylaws, which were approved by the board at its March 2018 meeting. These include:

Additionally, NACUBO members also approved a 3 percent dues increase for the 2019–20 membership year. This will result in an increase ranging from $25 to $267 for institutional members, allowing NACUBO to continue providing high-quality resources and services to its members and effectively advocating on behalf of higher education.
