Boyer, a partner with Kutak Rock LLP and the immediate past chair of the Epilepsy Foundation. Luebke and Boyer began their first terms on June 1. In addition, the MOC ratified the appointments of UCP of Central California Executive Director Roger Slingerman to serve a full term as the West RAC representative on the board and for UCP of Central Pennsylvania President and CEO Janeen Latin to complete the current term as the Northeast RAC representative.
“The Board of Trustees is extremely proud to welcome its new and continuing members as we enter an exciting phase for our affiliate network,” said Board Chairman Keith Graham, managing principal of Graham, Brown & Dutton, PC in Mobile, Alabama. “I look forward to helping lead this amazing and storied organization as we prepare to mark UCP’s 75th anniversary.”

Guided by a new three-year strategic plan we’ve developed in close cooperation with our affiliate leaders, UCP is ready to build on its proud legacy as one of the nation’s top service providers and advocates for people with disabilities.”
