NACCE 2017 Collage

 A huge thank you to all who participated in NACCE 2017 last week! We had almost 400 community college catalysts in attendance and many were first time attendees. Throughout the conference, we tested and tried a few new ideas: dine around networking dinners for first time and/or solo attendees, a Pirates Ball & Social Entrepreneurship Celebration, a breakout track exclusively dedicated toward advancement and fundraising professionals, focus groups centered around the future of NACCE, and a record number of preconference options. We shared best practices, learned from one another's failures and successes, made new entrepreneurial connections and celebrated our award winners. We have an amazing network and are so proud of the amazing work our members are doing throughout the U.S. and Canada!

If you have not yet completed the post-conference survey, please do so here by this Friday, October 20! We will be sharing the results in our next member enews on October 31.

We were delighted to publish this opinion editorial on the eve of the kickoff of the conference on It highlights the importance of ecosystems in fostering entrepreneurial activities and innovation. Andy Stoll, senior program officer, from the Kauffman Foundation delivered a Firestarter talk at the conference highlighting the importance of creating "ecosystem builders" on college campuses and in communities throughout the U.S.
