In 2009 the league Board of Directors Governance Committee surveyed affiliated credit unions proposing a restructuring of the director election system for the board. Changes in bylaws, approved by the membership in 2010, include a reduction in number from 12 chapter directors and six alternate directors to six chapter directors and three at-large directors to streamline board governance and provide a more equitable representation of the state’s credit unions, said the league. Officers for 2011-2012 are:
* Chair, Todd; * Vice chair, Wiemert; * Secretary, Chartier; and * Treasurer, Skudlarek.
The election took place following the league’s Annual Meeting April 5 in Plantsville, Conn.
