Meet Your NACCU Volunteers:
This is the latest installment of the NACCU series highlighting our association volunteers. NACCU provides programs and services to our members, many which would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of our volunteer leaders. Volunteers, whether they are a committee member, a Board member, or an onsite volunteer at a conference, are all important in making NACCU volunteer-driven programs an exceptional experience for our card industry peers.
Campus Card Information:
Name: William Bourlier
School: University of Southern California
Volunteer Role: Volunteer Development Committee
What is your role at your institution?
I am an Assistant Manager for USCard Services and I oversee the operations for the customer service center at the University Park Campus at the University of Southern California.
Where was the first NACCU conference you attended?
My first conference was in 2016 in San Francisco.
What is your favo(u)rite thing about volunteering with your NACCU committee?
I really enjoy getting to know colleagues across the United States and Canada.
What show are you binge-watching right now?
I am currently watching Friends, since I have never seen it before.
What is your go-to coffee / tea order?
I prefer black coffee with a packet of Splenda.
What is your favo(u)rite memory from when you were a student?
So many great memories during my time at the University of California-Santa Barbara. My favorite would be getting up early in the morning and listening to the sounds of the Pacific Ocean or visiting a beach nearby with a wonderful tide pool full of marine life that you can explore during low-tide.
What is one thing that would surprise people about you?
I ran the LA marathon in 2019 because my girlfriend at the time bribed me with Los Angeles Rams season tickets for the upcoming season. Due to COVID, I have yet to cash in on those tickets.
What is the hardest and easiest part about working virtually for you?
The hardest part of working virtually would be not seeing co-workers and colleagues in person, and going to campus and not seeing students on campus. The easiest is the very short commute. No more one-hour-plus commute to get to/from work!
