James Liubicich ChE’83

Running for: Nominating Committee

Campaign Statement

As a candidate for the Nominating Committee, I understand very well its duties to seek out and vet the best candidates for CUAA, especially the positions of President, Alumni Trustee and Officers.  If elected it will be a great privilege to serve again with other committee members.  At this time in CUAA’s and CU’s history we need the strength of our Alums to come through to advance and support the community.  To the extent that I can continue to serve I look forward to the opportunity if chosen.
