Get to Know a Board Member: Liz Akert

The Aksarben Curling Club is run entirely by volunteers, including its board of directors who set the direction for the club and makes decisions about our programming, equipment, and budget. We want to introduce you to our board members in future newsletters so you recognize them at ACC events!

Meet Liz Akert, Board Treasurer

Liz grew up in Madison, WI but didn’t learn to curl until 2016. Liz joined like a lot of us in recent years: by signing up for a Learn to Curl, and getting hooked instantly! In 2018, Liz joined the Aksarben Curling Club’s board of directors and serves in the critical role as our board Treasurer. When she’s not curling, she works as an accountant at Union Pacific.

Liz formed a team with her husband, Brian, and friend LJ McElravy, and later picked up Bill Citro. They’ve been playing together for a few years now as Stop, Drop, and Curl—currently playing at the 2:15pm Sunday League draw.

When asked about her favorite curling moment, Liz shared it was winning the Irish Open Bonspiel’s Novice/5&U bracket last year in March 2019: “I was four months pregnant and exhausted, but we played great!” Liz shares she can’t wait to teach Piper how to curl (though, Piper was technically already on the team for Liz’s win at the Irish Open!) 

Liz loves talking up the Aksarben Curling Club to everyone she meets. “Most people from Omaha don’t know about our club, and are surprised about our size and how often we play. I always encourage everyone to try a Learn to Curl. I also love the community of the club and our gatherings at Pauli’s. Everyone is passionate about curling and eager to get to know each other.”
