Greetings from the ICAA President!

Lee Ann Jourdan

ICAA President

Assistant Vice President for Alumni Engagement & Annual Giving
Franklin College


You’ve either just found ICAA for the first time, or you are a seasoned pro – either way, I’m glad you’re here! Not only do I hope ICAA can be a resource for you, but we need you to be a resource for ICAA!


The mission of ICAA is to enhance the professional development of its members and their understanding of issues facing private higher education and institutional advancement. These days, those issues can seem daunting! That is why I love being part of ICAA. Our colleagues from across many states are knowledgeable and generous. You don’t have to recreate the wheel each time you encounter a roadblock – you can simply phone a friend. If you’re going through it, chances are, someone else is, has, or will soon.


You will get out of ICAA exactly what you want. You’ll have the best success if you keep your profile and roster up to date and show up for professional development opportunities, including Summer Conference. Better yet – volunteer with us! Join a committee and get a peek behind the curtain. Consider a role on the Executive Committee. Help us grow our membership. I guarantee you’ll have a good time with a great group of colleagues.


You cannot beat the value of ICAA.


I am excited to serve as ICAA President for the 2022-23 year. I stand on the shoulders of all who have come before me. I am always open to your feedback, so please share freely! Thank you for all you do for ICAA!
