SWACUMS was organized on September 19, 1997 at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas as the Texas Association of College and University Mail Services (TACUMS). The name was changed to Southwest Association of College and University Mail Services on October 18, 2000. The name better reflects a membership centered in, but not limited to, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
Since its inception, SWACUMS has been a non-partisan, non-sectarian and non-profit organization to promote, develop, and unite college and university employees charged with handling institutional mail. Our greatest asset is our members. SWACUMS facilitates cooperation and communication between its members and provides a means through which their knowledge and experience may be pooled.
To maintain a communications network of mailing professionals in an academic environment where ideas are discussed, solutions are found and vision and knowledge are shared for the purpose of delivering economical, convenient and quality business services to our respective institutions.
