He will replace Rosie Holub, who plans to retire in December, the associations announced Thursday. "During her 11 years with MCUA, Rosie's exemplary leadership well positioned the association for the future," said MCUA Board Chairman Stan Moeckli, adding that the board has a high level of confidence in Beall and his leadership abilities. Beall has served in his current position since 2004. "Mike leaves the association much stronger after his nearly seven years of service," said Miguel Boluda Jr., chairman of MDDCCUA and CEO of PAHO/WHO FCU, Washington, D.C. "He has been a tireless advocate for the credit unions of Maryland and D.C., and has elevated our advocacy, training and community outreach activities." Moeckli said Beall plans to attend MCUA's upcoming convention and exposition in Branson, Mo., Sept. 14-16. His last day with MDDCCUA will coincide with the opening of the Volunteer Leadership Conference in Ocean City, Md., Oct. 22. Beall spearheaded efforts to merge the Maryland and DC associations in January 2006 and was instrumental in the National Credit Union Foundation's development of its REAL Solutions project. Previously, Beall managed the governmental affairs and partnerships for World Council of Credit Unions, served as executive vice president and lobbyist for the North Carolina Credit Union League, and served as a credit union general counsel where he developed, training and implemented compliance programs. He serves on the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Committee, is a director of the Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Maryland and Delaware, and is a lead facilitator for the Credit Union Development Education program. He earned a juris doctorate degree from the University of Richmond and a bachelor's degree in government and politics from the University of Maryland. Holub, who had had become CEO of MCUA in 1999 and announced in December 2009 she would retire at the end of this year, said, "Mike's background of strong credit union advocacy will greatly benefit the (Missouri) association in addressing the legislative and regulatory issues during these difficult times."
