Call for Applications: 2026 ASCA National Specialty Chairperson

ASCA Members,

It is time to select the 2026 National Specialty Chairperson for the 2026 ASCA National Specialty to be held at Island Grove Regional Park in Greeley, Colorado, September 18-26, 2026. We are calling for applications from those interested in serving as the National Specialty Chairperson.

The Nationals Chair oversees the entire National Specialty. The Nationals Chair works with the event chairs to create the budget, approves all expenditures, and makes sure the budget is adhered to. The Nationals Chair makes sure all event chairs have what they need to run the events effectively, is the overall troubleshooter for the specialty, and administers any conflict resolutions that may arise. This person must have served on a National Specialty Committee and must be knowledgeable of ASCA’s rules and policies and have a desire to ensure that Nationals participants have a positive experience. This person must be willing and able to wear many hats with a smile. The Nationals Chair makes monthly reports to the ASCA President and Treasurer and works closely with the Nationals Liaison to keep the Board informed about the progress of the Nationals plans. Because this person is responsible for collecting money, maintaining the Nationals ledger, writing checks for all Nationals expenses, and creating the final income statement, the National Specialty Chairperson will be bonded by ASCA, per National Specialty Rules.

You do not have to live in Colorado to apply!

If you are interested in serving as the 2026 ASCA National Specialty Chairperson, please send your letter of interest/resume, outlining your Nationals experience and your qualifications for the position, to ASCA Executive Secretary Kalla Jaco at asca.execsec@gmail.com by August 1, 2024, to be considered.
