Meet Your NACCU Volunteers: Amy Fox
This is the latest installment of a new NACCU series highlighting our association volunteers. NACCU provides programs and services to our members, many which would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of our volunteer leaders. Volunteers, whether they are a committee member, a Board member, or an onsite volunteer at a conference, are all important in making NACCU volunteer-driven programs an exceptional experience for our card industry peers.
Campus Card Information:
Name: Amy Fox
School: Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL
Professional Role: FSUCard Program Coordinator - I oversee our card center operations, which includes our division's customer service call center that was launched in August. This fall, FSU admitted our largest freshman class in school history and we had a record-setting orientation! We produced over 7,800 cards during our orientation season and answered over 1,000 phone calls in the call center's first month of operation. I enjoy leading a team committed to assisting our campus community.
Volunteer Role: Member, Professional Development Committee
Where was the first NACCU conference you attended?
My first NACCU Conference was in New Orleans in 2015. It was also my first time visiting New Orleans, and I had a blast!
What is your favo(u)rite thing about volunteering with your NACCU committee?
I love to learn and I enjoy helping others. Working on the Professional Development Committee has been a perfect fit.
What show are you binge-watching right now?
Due to my schedule, sitting down to watch TV or streaming shows is rare. I do "binge listen" to podcasts. Most recently was Mission Log (a podcast about Star Trek).
What is your go-to coffee / tea order?
Usually, a cold brew coffee, but sometimes I'll change it up for a tea. My favorite tea order is London Fog Latte from Starbucks.
What is your favo(u)rite memory from your own student days?
I am currently a student! After obtaining a 2-year degree many years ago, receiving a Bachelor's degree has been my personal long-term goal. I am very fortunate to have the support necessary to make that happen. I am enjoying learning how the campus community interacts with our services, to help strengthen our customer service to the university community.
What is one thing that would surprise people about you?
I am training for my fourth half-marathon next year.
What is your favo(u)rite candy?
Andes candies. I could eat an entire sleeve without even thinking about it.
