THE ILLINOIS ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGE STORES
Connect, experience, learn, and improve with Illinois' only independent non-profit organization for collegiate and K-12 retail stores.
For only $25 annually, independent collegiate and K-12 campus stores can participate on committees, take part in association activities, and engage with other members who are dedicated to developing relationships on campus through retailing at their institution.
Members will have access to a directory which contains names, addresses, telephone numbers, and emails of current store and vendor members;the member handbook which includes the constitution and bylaws; and past and present newsletters. Members attending the annual conference can attend educational sessions, participate in conference activities, and attend a trade show and take advantage of show specials.
“When I first took the job as Bookstore Manager, I was new to the bookstore industry and had no idea what questions to ask or what I didn’t yet know. It was an IACS meeting where I first had my eyes opened to new technology, contacts, industry trends and solutions. IACS has given me the tools I need to report back to my stake holders with confidence, improve our student services, and find solutions to challenges the industry is facing. Our membership is invaluable.”

“IACS has allowed me, as a leader, to reach out and connect to other campus stores to discuss and explore ideas that help innovate and improve our customer experience.”
