Greetings from the ICAA President!

Kyle Vaughn

ICAA President


Executive Director of Institutional Advancement
Ashland University

I have always been a big believer of getting the most out of any conference you attend. Attending big ACT conferences when I was in admissions was always interesting but typically frustrating; I found myself asking, “How can we do that at AU, we are not the same as (no names please)?” It always seemed it was impossible to scale the big ideas. When I transitioned to advancement my first professional experience was at the ICAA Summer Conference. In my true nature I went in ready to take it all in as the Director of Annual Giving. What I found were people that had tremendous ideas, similar struggles, similar staff sizes and I quickly realized I had colleagues and friends I could reach out to for ideas or to vent.


That is why I immediately jumped in to volunteer to be on the Summer Conference Planning Committee and was honored to be asked to serve as treasurer. I truly believe in the mission of ICAA and I would argue that we are the best value out there. ICAA has a long history of great volunteers that have worked hard to continue the great mission of ICAA and I am excited to serve this year as president and follow in their footsteps.


The relationships we create through ICAA are truly amazing. I have many friends through ICAA and can reach out to them anytime, it is one of the reasons I love this organization so much. I say that to say this, reach out anytime, I am always willing to connect and help in any way I can!
