IACAC Executive Board Meeting
Monday, September 9, 2019
Illinois State University


  • Treasurer: The finance committee continues to complete a thorough review of the fiscal policy.
  • Chief Delegate: NACAC has been cooperating with the Department of Justice to review the Code of Ethics and Professional Practices document for nearly two years. They’re requesting that NACAC remove three provisions from its code of ethics to comply with antitrust laws.  NACAC members will vote at the annual conference on whether to remove the three ethical provisions from its professional guidelines. There is a revised NACAC membership model which provides more opportunities to join NACAC.

  • President: Items to focus on this year will include reevaluating the IACAC membership model, developing a legislative agenda, and considering the financial surplus and the proposals put forth by the ad hoc committee.
