2021 New Business Officers (NBO) Program

July 8-9, 15-16



The New Business Officers (NBO) Program is designed to provide resources, information, and guidance to those new to the Chief Business Officer role within a higher education setting. Throughout the four-afternoon, online workshop, participants will examine the complexities of the role and learn from experienced chief business officers, presidents, provosts, NACUBO experts, and other significant higher education representatives. Key issues for the success of every new business officer will be covered.
Attendance at the New Business Officers Program is limited to first-time chief business and financial officers who report directly to a president or chancellor and who have been in their current positions for less than three years.
