  • NORRISTOWN, Pa. (2/3/12)--Pennsylvania's Superior Court has overturned the conviction of a former CEO of United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 1776 FCU for theft, saying that she did not knowingly waive her right to be represented by a lawyer at her three-day jury trial in July 2010. The three-judge panel said Anne L. Clyburn, 45, of Chester County, must receive a new trial because neither the lower court judge nor prosecutor advised her of the specific elements in each of the charges against her before she waived her right to a lawyer. The district attorney's office is deciding whether to provide a new trial or appeal the higher court's ruling. Clyburn was convicted of stealing funds from the $7 million asset credit union, which is based in Plymouth Meeting, Pa.  during the more than six years she served as president/CEO.. She was charged with giving herself $32,469 in unauthorized raises and writing four unauthorized credit union checks for personal use. In September, she was sentenced to one to seven years in state prison and an additional five years' probation. During her appeal, she said the lower court judge should not have allowed her to represent herself (Phillyburbs.com Feb. 2) …

  • ROYAL OAK, Mich. (2/3/12)--Thomas Zamberlan, CEO of Royal Oak, Mich.-based OUR CU, is etiring, ending a 46-year career with the credit union movement, the credit union's board announced Wednesday.  Zamberlan has been with the credit union since 1985 and has been CEO since 1999. In 2008, in the midst of the nation's financial crisis, he told members, "First and foremost, we are interested in a long-term relationship with you as a member. There is no substitute for a conservative management that aims to operate by the principle that what is good for you is also good for the credit union." "Tom's departure leaves a significant void," said Board Chairman Jeremy Water. "While we would prefer not to see him go, his years of leadership and continued growth leave us in a solid position." Zamberlan was the $204 million asset credit union's fourth president in 53 years of operation …
