"I am excited to represent the University of Arkansas at a national level on AUBER's board," Jebaraj said. "This position will allow wonderful collaborations, encourage sharing of best practices and provide the latest in research."
Kathy Deck, the 2017-18 AUBER president, director of Community and Economic Research Partnerships at the University of Alabama's Culverhouse College of Business and former Walton College director of the Center for Business and Economic Research center, welcomed new board members.
"The AUBER organization continues to add value for regional economic experts at universities across the United States," Deck said. "The newly elected board of directors bring their enthusiasm and talent to AUBER and will continue the good work of supporting our membership with vital programming and connection opportunities."
The board elections were announced Oct. 16 at AUBER's 2018 conference held in Salt Lake City, Utah, which was hosted by the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute at the University of Utah.
