History

NCSA was formed in 2013 after several years of discussion between Campus Stores of New England and College Store Association of New York State. CSNE,founded in 1961, and CSA-NYS founded in 1971. were established to promote and enhance levels of knowledge and expertise in the college industry. Since their founding both associations expanded their membership to include all campus stores serving an educational institution. After working together for decades, CSA-NYS and CSNE realized that combining their strengths in one association would benefit all of their members and NCSA was born.
