Central Office Staff

The Central Office is a busy place, representing the hub of ACUI activities throughout the year. We couldn't do what we do without our volunteers, and our staff puts a lot of time and energy into supporting those volunteers and providing the resources our members find so valuable.

The ACUI Central Office is only a few keystrokes or phone call away. You are also welcome to visit us should you be traveling through beautiful Bloomington, Ind. Informal visits are welcome without notice; should you desire to meet with specific staff, please contact them in advance to arrange a meeting to ensure their availability.

Below is a staff directory including areas of responsibility. If you are unsure of whom to contact, please call us at 812.245.ACUI (812.245.2284) and we will be happy to direct you to the proper person.
