II have been attending SACUBO conferences for the past 7 years and volunteered in multiple roles. Currently, I serve as the Business Partner Relations Coordinator. Our team works with many organizations and companies that provide services or supplies to our college and university campuses. Prior to this roll, I was an At Large Board member representing small colleges.

Since beginning my undergraduate coursework, I have only worked in a university setting for my whole career.

Decision to Volunteer with SACUBO

I wanted to meet other professionals from other institutions to broaden my network. My hope is that other business and finance professionals take advantage of such a great community and knowledge base throughout SACUBO.

I served on the Research Universities Constituent Committee for four years (2017-2020) and was the Chair in my final year.

I enjoy multi-day backpacking trips, and I like to run half marathons.

Decision to Volunteer with SACUBO

It is truly fulfilling to be part of such a wonderful organization. SACUBO has a really great reputation of putting on good conferences with relevant content across multiple functional areas. I wanted to contribute my time to keep the organization at a high level. Furthermore, the more people who get involved, the diversity of thoughts and opinions further contribute to the success of the organization and the conferences. I would encourage everyone to get involved. The time commitment is very manageable.

Brett Powell

Assistant Vice President and Controller, Baylor University

Number of Years in Higher Education: 20+

Involvement with SACUBO

I have been involved with SACUBO for as long as I can remember – attending Fall Workshops, Annual Meetings, and other events; speaking at several events; and serving on committees. Currently, I am the At Large member of the Board representing research universities, Chair the Benchmarking Committee for SACUBO, and work with business partner relations.

An Interesting Fact

My first job was as a farm hand, where I learned valuable lessons about how I did not want to spend the rest of my life!

Decision to Volunteer with SACUBO

I initially volunteered with SACUBO for the additional networking opportunities and have never been disappointed. There are incredibly talented professionals throughout the SACUBO region, and I value the connections I have made through Committee and Board work. Networking is, of course, an important part of each SACUBO event, but volunteering provides opportunities to work with colleagues throughout the year.
