Oakland elected vice chair of National CU Foundation
SEATTLE (2/18/08)--Gary Oakland, president/CEO of BECU, Seattle, was unanimously elected as vice chairman of the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) board. Oakland will chair NCUF’s Fundraising Committee. He represents investors in the Callahan Fund, a sub-fund of the Community Investment Fund, which provides NCUF’s underwriting support for the Biz Kid$ financial education series on national public television. Francois Henriquez, senior vice president and general counsel for US Central FCU in Lenexa, Kan., was elected as NCUF board secretary. Henriquez will continue to chair NCUF’s grants committee. Dennis DeGroodt, president/CEO of Missouri Corporate CU in St. Louis, was reelected as NCUF treasurer. DeGroodt will continue to chair NCUF’s finance committee. After the NCUF officer elections in Denver two weeks ago, new NCUF Chairman Allan McMorris presented awards to NCUF’s two most recent chairs, Mary Cunningham, who directed the adoption of REAL Solutions and Credit Union Development Education; and Chuck Purvis, who directed the creation of the Community Investment Fund. Cunningham will remain on the NCUF Board in a non-voting capacity as immediate past chairman. Purvis has now rotated off of the NCUF Board, but plans to participate in NCUF programs.
