Daredevil NCUA and mom speakers at N.Y. league convention
ALBANY, N.Y. (9/24/08)--The Credit Union Association of New York announced speakers for its annual convention Oct. 7. The event will take place in Niagara Falls Oct. 6-8. “The theme of this year’s convention is ‘harness the power’ and each of these individuals has done just that in their life, for credit unions and the human spirit,” said William J. Mellin, association president/CEO. Speakers include Alison Levine, president, Daredevil Strategies; Rodney E. Hood, National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) vice chairman; and Jill Kelly, co-founder, Hunter’s Hope Foundation. Levine will speak about organizational effectiveness, leadership development and team dynamics. She has an 18-year business career in healthcare, technology and finance. She has worked at Goldman Sachs and served as deputy finance director for California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Hood will present a general issues update. Prior to his appointment as NCUA vice chairman, he worked as association administrator of the Rural Housing Service in the U.S. Department of Agriculture. He addressed the housing needs of rural America and helped administer a $43 billion dollar mortgage portfolio. Kelly, wife of former Buffalo Bills quarterback and pro football Hall of Fame member Jim Kelly, will provide information about Hunter’s Hope, a foundation she and her husband established in 1997 after their son, Hunter, was diagnosed with Krabbe Disease.
