President's Message

Dear Southern Region Members,

I hope all members will travel to Santa Fe, New Mexico for the Southern Region Conference hosted by the University of New Mexico March 15 – 17, 2017.  The conference will be filled with outstanding speakers, great educational sessions, and undoubtedly, exceptional food and hospitality.  The conference will span both Santa Fe and Albuquerque cities.  It will be a true delight.  If you are interested in volunteering during the conference, please feel free to contact Lynne Bell at lynnew@uark.edu for more information.

If you would like to volunteer at the upcoming 2017 National Conference, please feel free to contact me at svgigch@uga.edu for more information. 

NACUFS is a vibrant, dynamic association that has many resources and opportunities for all members.  The benefits are bountiful and long lasting.  As my term slowly comes to a close, I would like to thank the Southern Region for their support throughout the years.  Serving as the Southern Region President has been an honor and a privilege.  

Best wishes,

Susan van Ggich,
Southern Region President
