Who We Are:

NASCA's Mission is to help state chief administrators (CAOs) and their teams strategically transform state government operations through the power of shared knowledge and thought leadership.

Founded in 1976, the National Association of State Chief Administrators (NASCA), is a non-partisan, nonprofit, 501(c)3 association representing state chief administrators. NASCA’s primary state government members are Cabinet level and senior public officials that oversee the departments that provide operational support to other state agencies. Common areas of oversight by NASCA’s primary member can include general services, procurement, facilities, information technology, risk management, accounting, budget, human resources, and more. NASCA encourages the participation by deputy directors and senior level staff that support the state chief administrators.

NASCA COVID-19 Resources

As we keep a watchful eye on COVID-19 and how the pandemic impacts our states, staff have collected policy and practice resources from our members, strategic partners, like-minded associations, entities such as the CDC and our corporate partners. As the situation is ever-changing, we will continuously monitor state responses and provide resources on a regular basis. All members are encouraged to respond to the Call for Resources and share detailed information and links to be included on the NASCA website.

NASCA's Winter Thought Leadership Sponsorship

Join NASCA for the Winter Thought Leadership Series as we embark on a review of the lessons learned in 2020 through targeted sessions on leadership and management, result-oriented strategic planning, a study of enterprise-wide solutions and moving out of a siloed approach to state government operations.  These will be accomplished through keynote addresses, state micro-reviews, panel presentations, Learning Labs with our corporate partners, and thoughtful member engagement.  Along the way we will embed fun activities for informal networking as well as honor member accomplishments with a virtual awards ceremony.
