Become a Volunteer

As the national association for professionals involved in concurrent enrollment partnerships, NACEP was founded to provide a national forum for members to engage in professional development and collegial support. There are many ways you can get involved with NACEP, including:

  • Present at a regional or national conference
  • Get involved in a state chapter
  • Volunteer to help out at a regional or national conference
  • Write a blog entry
  • Help with a webinar
  • Volunteer for a committee or run for a commission position

Run for an elected position on the Board

Shape the future of concurrent enrollment through national service.  At least one elected position comes available on the Board of Directors each year and Presidential appointments often do as well.

To express interest in Board service, contact NACEP President Patrick Cannon.
