BIRMINGHAM, Ala. and TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (3/23/09)--The League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) announced its new 16-member board of directors. The new board, which consists of eight representatives from Alabama credit unions and eight from Florida credit unions, will preside over LSCU--the entity formed from the recent consolidation of the Alabama and Florida Credit Union Leagues. Each state’s previous board chairman became a member of the new board and selected seven board members from their states to serve on the LSCU board. Executive officers will be elected at an upcoming organizational meeting. The LSCU board of directors consists of:
* Ola Anise--Azalea City CU, Mobile, Ala.; * Alvin Cowans--McCoy FCU, Orlando, Fla.; * Dale Dalbey--Mutual Savings CU, Birmingham, Ala.; * John Hirabayashi--Community First CU of FL, Jacksonville, Fla.; * Rich Helber--GTE FCU, Tampa, Fla.; * Brent Lister--First Florida CU, Jacksonville, Fla.; * Pat Mason--Sun CU, Hollywood, Fla.; * Joe McGee--Legacy Community FCU, Birmingham, Ala.; * Greg Olmsted--North Alabama Educators CU, Huntsville, Ala.; * Larry Scott--Campus USA CU, Gainesville, Fla.; * Deborah Seymour--Multi-Media CU, Orlando, Fla.; * Bob Steensma--Five Star CU, Dothan, Ala.; * Steve Swofford--Alabama CU, Tuscaloosa, Ala.; * Linda Walker--Riverdale CU, Selma, Ala.; * Tina Williams--The Infirmary FCU, Mobile, Ala.; and * Mary Wood--West Coast FCU, Clearwater, Fla.
The memberships of the Alabama and Florida leagues recently voted to combine the two organizations into one, which represents 332 credit unions with combined assets of $55 billion. As the League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU), the joining of these two entities will create a stronger, more strategically situated organization, the league said.
