May 23, 2006
SALT LAKE CITY – Westminster’s assistant vice president of financial affairs, Curtis Ryan, has been elected to be the chair of the Small Institutions Committee of the Western Association of College Business Officers (WACUBO).
As chair, Ryan will represent over 350 small institutions in WACUBO on issues ranging from college finances to disaster planning. Curtis has been active in WACUBO for over a decade, and served on the host committee of this year’s conference in Spokane, Wash.
Members of the Small Institutions Committee work to identify issues pertaining to small institutions within WACUBO, and act as advisors to other members of WACUBO. The committee also works to increase exposure of WACUBO and maintain open lines of communication with the National Association of College and University Business Officers.
Steve Morgan, vice president of Westminster College, said, “This is a prestigious recognition of Curtis’ contribution to higher education by western business officers.”
The WACUBO was founded in 1937 to give business officers in western regions the opportunity to develop professionally, develop solutions to issues in higher education, and share their knowledge with their colleagues. There are member institutions in 14 western United States, three Canadian Provinces, Mexico and other Pacific Rim nations.
