Walker earns CAUBO honour

Nancy Walker, the U of L's Vice-President (Finance & Admin.) has received the 2009 CAUBO Outstanding Contribution Award.

CAUBO is a consortium of Canadian Association University Business Officers that promotes professional management and effective leadership in administrative affairs in Canadian universities.

Being part of CAUBO is a great resource for institutions and a benefit that Walker recognized immediately during her first conference in 1990.

Since that time, Nancy has played a significant role in establishing CAUBO as a leader in best practices for academic institutions.

CAUBO recognizes their peers at their annual conference in June. Nancy has contributed to numerous CAUBO committees; Financial Reporting Committee, Faculty Bargaining Committee, Executive Committee and the CAUBO Presidency in 2005-2006. To this day, Nancy is still involved with CAUBO committees and is an unwavering advocate for the organization.

In addition to CAUBO service, the Outstanding Contribution Award also recognizes the excellent service and best practices of Walker's work at the University of Lethbridge. Most recently, Walker co-chaired the University's 2009-2013 Strategic Planning Committee; the plan that identifies the University's goals and objectives for the next five years.

Serving the University of Lethbridge for 19 years, Walker is undeniably an expert in her field and colleagues across the country turn to her for leadership and guidance.

Walker's educational achievements include a Bachelor of Management (U of L), Charted Accountant (CA) designation and Masters of Business Administration (MBA). In 2007, she was inducted into the U of L Alumni Honour Society recognizing her academic achievements, contributions to the accounting field and community involvement.
