DENVER, Colo. (12/28/10)--Arizona Credit Union League President/CEO Scott Earl has been named interim president/CEO of the Credit Union Association of Colorado (CUAC) and the Credit Union Association of Wyoming (CUAW), which are working toward a merger with the Arizona league. Effective Jan. 1, Earl will manage his time among the three states to insure operations continue at their highest level service to member credit unions. CUAC outgoing interim CEO Pete Kirchhof will return to his full-time lobbying practice and will continue to represent credit unions in Colorado's State Capitol. No official timeline has been developed for the proposed merger. It requires a membership vote, which could be scheduled for first quarter 2011, said the associations' press release. If the merger is approved, Earl will become CEO of the new entity. Denver has been selected as the location for the merged organization's headquarters. Additional offices will be maintained and staffed in Phoeniz, Ariz., and Casper, Wyo.
