Why the NACCU Vault is a valuable resource to card office admins

Andrew Hudson   ||   Aug 27, 2021  ||   ,

In a post to the National Association of Campus Card Users (NACCU) Positive IDentity blog, Crystal Bazarnic outlines the Vault and the valuable card transaction system resources it holds. Campus card admins are busy people, and it can be hard to find extra time to devote to learning more about the industry. Thankfully, NACCU provides its members with access to the Vault.

In her "You Don't Have to Start from Scratch - NACCU's Got Your Back!" post Bazarnic, NACCU's Marketing and Communications manager, details why the Vault is one of the association's most valuable member resources.

"Maybe you are getting ready to send out an RFP. Perhaps you are tasked with redesigning your card or creating a new policy for your cardholders," writes Bazarnic. "Maybe you know there are some forms and documents your office should have in place, but do not know where to begin. You know that your peers have done this stuff before, so why should you have to start from scratch?"

That's where the Vault comes in. The Vault is a collection of file libraries provided by NACCU peers across the campus card community. The file libraries cover a full range of topics, including:

  • Card designs
  • Card office floor plans & photos
  • Card program logos
  • Case studies
  • Job descriptions
  • Marketing materials
  • Mission statements
  • RFPs, strategic plans, and project management files
  • Card office forms & policies
  • Videos

"This summer, NACCU held a six-week event to fill the Vault with new resources, allowing members to upload materials for a chance to win prizes while helping fellow NACCU members," says Bazarnic. "The 'Stuff the Vault' event collected over 60 new campus transaction industry resources."

For campus card admins working on a new project, or just in need of some inspiration, consulting the Vault and its files could provide a solution. Likewise, if you have documents that could benefit other NACCU members and peers, new additions to the Vault are always welcome.

Resources in the Vault are only downloadable by NACCU members who are logged into the website. For more, check out the Vault.
