Current Board of Directors

The Center of the American West is honored to be served by a board of unique, fun, and fully engaged members from both the academic community and the community at large.  Our board is bipartisan, is more concerned with problem solving than with political posturing, and brings a host of skills essential to our operations.  They are also simply quite a lot of fun to be with.
