The Central Association of College and University Business Officers (CACUBO) was the first regional association of business officers to be established. Business officers from six midwestern state institutions met in 1909 to discuss accounting and financial reporting. This meeting marked the beginning of cooperative action among midwestern higher education institutions. CACUBO was formally organized in 1912 and acquired its present name in 1946. Since it’s founding, CACUBO has grown to 610 member institutions/organizations which includes 550; Higher Education Institutions, 51; Corporations, and 11; Other organizations from 28 participating states. Individual members numbers 4857.
CACUBO members represent institutions large and small, public and private, from community colleges to small independent institutions to large research institutions. CACUBO is one of four regional associations (Central, Eastern, Southern, Western) making up the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO).
