Brekken elected as Minn. Foundation chair
ST. PAUL, Minn. (10/21/11)--The Minnesota Credit Union Foundation (MNCUF) board named its table officers Oct. 13. Pat Brekken was elected chair, Dave Larson was elected vice chair, and Kristi Mukomela was elected secretary/treasurer. Table officers are elected for one-year terms. Those elected are entering their second consecutive year in their respective roles. Brekken is president of Richfield/Bloomington CU, Richfield. Larson is senior vice president of Affinity Plus FCU, St. Paul, and executive director of the Affinity Plus Foundation. Both were appointed to new MNCUF board seats in October 2009 and were elected to three-year terms in August 2010. Mukomela, president of Novation CU, Oakdale, served as MNCUF chair from 2004 through 2010. The foundation “continues to capitalize on the progress we’ve made over the last few years,” Brekken said. “With our newly refined focus on financial education, we look forward to the opportunity to engage more and more credit unions in the foundation’s efforts and to be able to impact the broader community with our initiatives.” The table officers serve alongside four other directors with staggered board terms. They are:
* Chuck Albrecht, Mid-Minnesota FCU, Baxter; * Mary Hansen, Mayo Employees FCU, Rochester; * Lynn Kothe, North Memorial FCU, Robbinsdale; and * Brian Sherrick, Postal CU, Woodbury.
