Testimonials:
"I'm glad that the UConn Co-op is part of CSNE.  Being a member gives our store the opportunity to attend conferences such as the Super Regional Meeting & Buying Show as well as to network and learn from our colleagues across New England.  We may be one of the larger store members, but I have learned so much from the wonderful people I constantly meet at CSNE sponsored events.  It doesn't matter if you are a store that has revenues of $100,000 or $10 million, we are all campus stores and have many similar issues and concerns.  This is our industry and CSNE is our regional voice.  Being on the Board of Directors is giving me the opportunity to grow professionally beyond my leadership role at the Co-op as I find it important to give back to the industry that supports my family."
Dirk Fecho, Campus Stores and Professional Division Manager
UConn Co-op

" I am more informed about issues affecting the textbook industry since becoming involved with CSNE. I am more knowledgeable about digital delivery and legislation around the country regarding textbook pricing. This information has helped me when speaking to various groups on campus about textbooks and pricing."
Robin Dziczek, Assistant Director/Textbooks
Assumption College Bookstore

"As a small store, CSNE has made me feel welcome.  The association is for Prep School Stores too and not just College Stores."
Jo Lee, Students Services Manager
Brooks School
 

"Participating in CSNE has given me broader understanding of the industry. It has allowed me to not just be involved with textbooks but other aspects of the college store environment. It has helped me develop better people skills, prepare material and work in an area very new to me (serving on an all volunteer board) and be responsible for seeing that a group of people work to achieve one goal. That goal would be to better serve our CSNE membership. I do believe that I'm the better for having volunteered my time to CSNE."
Elsworth Gottlieb, Account Representative
Nebraska Book Company
