Daryl Nelson, in his first term of service, has served on the Board of Regents since 2014. Now retired, Daryl formerly held various management positions with Farm Credit Canada, including, most recently, Director of Enterprise Information Management.
Daryl has long known the important work that Luther College does, both at the High School campus, where his sister Sandra Nelson taught from seven-and-a-half years in the 1980’s, and at the University campus, of which his sister Susan Nelson, is an alumna (U’88) as well as his daughter, Amy (U’06).
His Bachelor of Administration Degree, and Chartered Professional Accountant designation prepared him for a career in financial matters, strategic planning, governance, project management, enterprise risk management, and information management. Combining his love of education with his passion for giving back, Daryl utilizes the management knowledge, skills, and experiences he has acquired through his working career “to assist others in advancing their lives through furthering their education.”
In retirement, Daryl continues to keep busy, serving as Secretary to the Board of Governors, Royal Regina Golf Club; Council member of the Central Evangelical Lutheran Church of Regina; Board member of the Saskatchewan Country Music Association; and Trustee, for the Carlson Scholarship Fund.
