WACUBO 2023 Annual Conference: Rising to the Challenge with WACUBO President Brad Baca

As we continue our gradual emergence from a certain hibernation over the last three years, the opportunity to engage with our colleagues is more critical than ever. Brad Bacca, President of Western Colorado University and the Western Association of College and University Business Officers, sits down this week with Howard Teibel as they turn their attention to the upcoming WACUBO Annual Conference coming April 30 to May 3 in Phoenix, Arizona.

This year’s theme is Rising to the Challenge – A call to intentionally engage in what we’ve learned and face our challenges with renewed resilience.

You can join Howard at the conference in his pre-conference workshop on producing innovative and creative thinking in the business office.
