Harriet May begins CUNA Board chairmanship today
WASHINGTON (6/1/10)--Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Vice Chair Harriet May begins her term today as CUNA's newest board chairman. May, president/CEO of GECU in El Paso, Texas, moves from the vice chair spot to complete the term of Kris Mecham, who leaves the U.S. this summer to perform church mission work in Mongolia. Her term will end at CUNA's Annual General Meeting held in February during CUNA's Governmental Affairs Conference. "CUNA has a full plate of important issues it's addressing--interchange, member business lending, alternative capital and many more," said May. "I look forward to working with my colleagues on the board, Dan Mica and, in short order, Bill Cheney as CUNA pursues an agenda that will help credit unions better serve their members," she added, referring to outgoing president/CEO Mica and Cheney, who will become president/CEO on July 5. Elections for other members of the executive committee will be conducted at the CUNA Board July 15 meeting, which is held in conjunction with The 1 Credit Union Conference, the combined conference of CUNA and World Council of Credit Unions held July 11-14 in Las Vegas. All officers will serve through the Annual General Meeting in February, when they will have the option of running for a full one-year term. Other current CUNA Board executive committee officers are:
* Treasurer: Pat Wesenberg, president, Point Plus CU, Stevens Point, Wis.; * Secretary: Mike Mercer, president, Georgia Credit Union Affiliates; and * At-Large: Dennis Pierce, CEO, CommunityAmerica CU, Lenexa, Kan.
A special election is underway for Mecham's District 5, Class B CUNA board seat. Deadline for casting ballots is Friday. Candidates for that position are:
* William Jacobs, White Sands FCU, Las Cruces, N.M.; * Angela S. McCathran, People's Trust FCU, Houston; and * Roger Heacock, president/CEO, Black Hills FCU, Rapid City, S.D.
