National Association of Campus Card Users (NACCU) contracts with AVISIAN Inc. to provide industry leading publication to the association’s 1200 member representatives
Reston, Virginia – December 11, 2002: AVISIAN Inc., publisher of CR80News, and the National Association of Campus Card Users (NACCU) have signed an agreement to provide the publication to the association’s members as a part of their package of benefits.
Since its premier issue in late 2001, CR80News has emerged as the leading source for information on closed campus card systems and identification technologies. The electronic newsletter already distributes to 5,000 subscribers in higher education, corporate security departments, and the identification vendor community. The addition of the 1,200 NACCU member representatives further increases CR80News’ ability to help build the campus card market through quality news and information.
NACCU was established in 1993 to serve the growing higher education identification card market. The Troy, Alabama-based nonprofit association has risen to meet the needs of its constituents through information dissemination, educational seminars, and expositions and conferences. In its 10-year existence, NACCU has grown to serve a member base in excess of 420 institutions and has expanded its focus to include card system representatives from both K-12 schools and corporate campuses.
According to Ron Pierce, Executive Director of NACCU, “the addition of CR80News to our already strong list of member benefits makes NACCU membership an even better value.” In addition to the new publication, members receive the association’s CardTalk newsletter; reduced rates for educational seminars and events; access to the organization’s valuable listservs and web resources; and discounted admission to the industry leading NACCU Annual Conference.
AVISIAN Inc. publishes several other ID technology magazines and newsletters in addition to CR80News. The company also serves a range of federal government agencies, financial institutions, and technology companies in the role of technology analysis and consultation. According to Jeff Staples, a founding partner of AVISIAN, “CR80News provides unbiased, relevant content focused specifically on campus card technology. NACCU is the premiere organization for educating, sharing ideas, and the fostering growth in the campus card technology. Our cooperation is an ideal fit.”
