NEW ORLEANS (2/3/09)--At its annual meeting last week, the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) Board elected a new slate of board members and officers. Two new board members were elected to three-year terms:
* Paul Mercer, president of the Ohio Credit Union League in Columbus, and; * Christopher Roe, senior vice president of corporate and legislative affairs for CUNA Mutual Group.
Three current board members were re-elected to new three-year terms:
* John Gregoire, president, Pro-Con Group Ltd., Madison, Wis.; * Allan Kemp McMorris, president/CEO, Oakland County CU, Waterford, Mich.; and * John Radebaugh, president, North Carolina Credit Union League.
Laida Garcia, executive vice president of Florida Central CU, Tampa, will serve as NCUF Treasurer and chair NCUF’s Investment Advisory Committee for a one-year term. Three current officers were re-elected to new one-year terms:
* McMorris will serve a second year as NCUF Chairman. He advocates credit union membership growth and financial education--key goals of the two largest programs receiving NCUF funding: REAL Solutions and Biz Kid$; * Gary Oakland, president/CEO, BECU, Seattle, will serve a second year as NCUF Vice Chairman. Oakland will also continue to chair NCUF’s Fundraising Committee.
