CANCAS Officers

CANCAS Executive Committee

The Executive Committee functions as the board of CANCAS and is composed of student officers and faculty advisors that coordinate the Collegiate Academy.

CANCAS continues to recruit student campus liaisons from CANCAS member institutions. Campus liaisons will be responsible for encouraging participation of their student bodies and organizations with CANCAS. They will stay in touch with CANCAS through News Notes, Facebook and attendance at the Fall Workshop and NCAS Annual Meeting, and recruit new student members from their home institution. If a student is interested in becoming a Campus Liaison please contact Dr. Beth Cauley or Dr. Dan Stovall (see below for contacts). Please use the flyer to recruit Campus Liaisons at your home institution!
