Greetings from the ICAA President!


ICAA President

Director of Development for Dicke College of Business Administration

Ohio Northern University

My membership in ICAA started 6 years ago and has been one of the best professional experiences that I could have imagined.  Through ICAA there have been numerous different educational opportunities that have helped hone my skill set and expand my knowledge of advancement in private higher education.

These opportunities are the cornerstone for all of the good work that ICAA does on an annual basis from the workshops to the summer conference.  Going beyond that cornerstone you’ll find a deep network of professionals that you can call upon to find shared experiences at similar institutions.  This network gives us a better perspective from a diverse set of voices in our field.  All of which is in our collective ICAA backyard.

This year I am honored to serve as president of this organization.  The entire volunteer team that serves on the executive committee and summer conference committee is dedicated to providing the best content possible for our member institutions.  We want to drive the conversation and move advancement in private higher education forward. 

For all of those institutions who are current members, I say thank you.  To those of you who are not or are on the fence, I dare you to find a better organization at a similar price point. Join now and become part of our network of dedicated professionals who are willing to share their ideas so that we all may succeed at providing our students with a world of possibilities.
