Only two weeks left till C3X conference hosted by National Association of College Auxiliary Services (NACAS) in Orlando. The C3X is hosted annually with the aim to bring together over 700 higher education institutions and nearly 200 NACAS business partners to share their experience on how the modern auxiliary services enrich the campus lives. This event promises to be especially extraordinary as NACAS are celebrating their 50th anniversary! So, what to expect at C3X 2018 this year? With impressive list of motivational speakers, from Kelsey Harmon Finn, Chief Executive Officer, NACAS to Leland Melvin, NASA Astronaut/Former Pro-Footballer, and variety of educational sessions it looks like there will be something to see and learn for everyone. If you’re visiting this year, why not start your day with water aerobics or lovely breakfast provided by NACAS partners, continued by keynote sessions and, of course, an exhibition. All 3 days offer impressive opportunity for networking, learning and, what’s very important, fun opportunities.
