Dear CSANC Members,
It is a privilege and honor to be your current CSANC President! Throughout the years of being involved with CSANC since 2001, I have been able to get to know many of the CSANC members that include stores, vendors, and other supporters. I’ve always liked the fact that the veteran members often reach out to the newer members to make them feel welcome and we all need to work together as one team to keep our association strong and thriving. We share the common goal to provide excellent service and support to the college industry and to share our experiences and practices with ways that can better our stores on our college campuses. We constantly face many challenges today, just like we have in past years, and there’s no doubt that we’ll continue to have greater challenges in the future. It is imperative that we accept the fact that what we’re doing now is never enough and we must always stay driven to better our stores, remain relevant on our campus, and make sure our college leaders are aware of the positive impacts our stores are making to our customers and institutions on a daily basis.
Our association is a very strong association whose greatest strength is its diversified members of stores and vendors that support the college store industry and are willing to share their positive experiences that can better us all. Our annual meetings are a great way for our association to come together to network and gain knowledge from the educational sessions, motivational speakers, and vendor trade shows that we offer at these meetings. We are expecting another great meeting in October 2016 for our 47th annual meeting that will be held in Wilmington, North Carolina. We hope that everyone will take the time come to the coast to attend this meeting and enjoy the beautiful downtown Wilmington waterfront that’s second to none.
Thank you and looking forward to seeing everyone in Wilmington. You don’t want to miss it!
