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 Sponsorship Prospectus Addendum Opportunities

NASCAs Executive Committee made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Spring Conference scheduled for May 11-13 in Indianapolis, IN. Although we are disappointed in the loss of this event, clearly the safety of our members – both state and corporate – is paramount. However, our commitment to bringing state and corporate partners together in unique ways continues. The NASCA team is extremely excited to offer multiple opportunities to provide true value and impact for our partners' commitment to the association. A variety of new or modified engagement tools are now available to each Corporate Partner member.
