Committee Involvement

Involvement in a committee allows you to help NACS support the retailer industry and gives you the opportunity to meet and grow relationships with your peers, from other supplier members as well as the retail liaisons to the supplier committees. Only those serving on NACS committees will be considered for serving on the NACS Supplier Board. Committee seats may be held for up to six years. Our Supplier Board pulls new Board candidates from our Supplier Committee members.

A voluntary post, involvement includes two meetings per year (travel and hotel expenses are not reimbursed) and some of your time commitment throughout the year on committee conference calls and committee worktime.

Supplier-Related Committees

Membership/Communications Committee
NACS liaison: Nicole Walbe
Provides strategic direction for supplier membership outreach, recruitment and retention plans and communications.

Exhibitor Advisory Committee
NACS liaison: Jeff McQuilkin
Established prior to 1990, the Exhibitor Advisory Committee provides exhibiting companies with a forum to discuss issues directly related to the NACS Show. The EAC addresses those issues and supports those programs that concern the exhibiting experience and fosters communication between the exhibitors, the official service contractor and show management at NACS. Additionally, responsible for development of Exhibitor Education Programs and content of the online Exhibitor Resource Center.

Manpower Committee
NACS liaison: Kym Selph
Executes the NACS Ambassadors volunteer program at the NACS Show, a group of supplier company volunteers who provide assistance and guidance to NACS Show attendees. Participation provides a great opportunity for suppliers to get involved in the Show process outside of their exhibit booth and offers additional exposure as they meet and greet industry leaders and decision makers who are navigating the educational sessions and expo.

Get Involved
One of the Supplier Board's goals is to maintain a comprehensive database of suppliers who have interest and expertise in a particular area. When there are openings on committees, the database will be the best resource for the board.
