ARLINGTON, Va. (12/29/10)--Longtime National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS) board member Roger Little is retiring from his state regulatory career Jan 1. Little, the deputy commissioner of credit unions for the Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation, has been a NASCUS board member for more than 12 years, and is a past chairman. “Roger has made significant contributions to NASCUS as an organization and to the state credit union system during this state regulatory career,” said Mary Martha Fortney, president/CEO of NASCUS. “On behalf of state regulators and NASCUS, we thank Roger for his service to NASCUS and commitment to state’s rights and the strength of the state credit union charter.” Little has served on the NASCUS board since 1999, and was chairman from 2003-2005. He was also active in the NASCUS Accreditation Program, serving on a number of accreditation review teams. Little has testified before committees in the U.S. House and Senate during his involvement with NASCUS, and has co-authored a NASCUS white paper. He began his career at the Michigan agency in 1984 as a credit union examiner. He later served as an examiner supervisor before assuming the role as deputy commissioner where he was responsible for the oversight of Michigan’s more than 200 state-chartered credit unions.
