Greetings from the ICAA President!


Vickie Wilkins

2019-2020 ICAA President

Director of Alumni Relations
Tiffin University

 As professionals in higher education advancement, we wear many hats. We take on different roles in our offices as well as in life. We are employees, spouses, parents, community members, friends… the list goes on. In addition, we all want to help move our institution’s mission forward, while meeting benchmarks and doing our very best work.

The mission of ICAA is to enhance the professional development of its members and their understanding of issues facing private higher education and institutional advancement. As I reflect on this past Summer Conference hosted in Columbus, I truly believe that we met our mission. This Summer Conference was filled with positive energy that I wish I could bottle up and take back to my institution. People were engaged, energetic, and ready to both learn and openly discuss issues in our shops and how we can work together to solve them. This is the power of ICAA: The willingness to share ideas with other institutions to help them move their mission forward and help students make the world a better place.

Thank you to a wonderful summer conference committee and executive committee. I am truly honored and humbled to be ICAA President in the upcoming year. I hope that you take advantage of the fantastic professional development one-day workshops we have planned this fall and spring, and please save time in your calendar next summer for the 2020 ICAA Summer Conference.




On behalf of the ICAA Summer Conference planning committee, thank YOU for inspiring us and we hope everyone enjoyed their Summer Conference experience!
