UsNet Re-elects Board Officers, Honors Marketing
ALBANY, N.Y. (6/20/13)--Four New York credit union leaders have been re-elected as board officers of Universal Sharing Network (UsNet), a credit union service organization that provides credit unions with access to more than 5,000 shared branches in the U.S. and beyond.

Board members re-elected to one-year terms include:

  • Chairman--Mark Pfisterer, president/CEO, AmeriCU CU, Rome;
  • Vice chairman--Mark Welshoff, president/CEO, Palisades FCU, Pearl River;
  • Treasurer--Christine Peters, CEO, Family First of NY FCU, Rochester; and
  • Secretary--Nancy Kasprzak-Whitmore, executive vice president, Niagara's Choice FCU, Niagara.
Pfisterer and Kasprzak-Whitmore also were re-elected to serve new three-year terms as board members. The board comprises 11 New York credit union leaders and Credit Union Association of New York (CUANY) President/CEO William J. Mellin.

UsNet, which is owned by New York credit unions and CUANY, held its annual meeting and organizational meeting June 13 in conjunction with CUANY's 2013 Annual Meeting and Convention.

UsNet also presented Saratoga's Community FCU, Saratoga, with the annual Ralph W. Hillman Award. The award, named for a former UsNet chairman, recognizes the shared-branching marketing efforts of a participating UsNet credit union.

"Saratoga's Community FCU has proactively marketed the convenience and accessibility of shared branching across multiple platforms in order to better serve its growing membership," said Marc Inger, UsNet chief operating officer. The credit union, its members and the entire shared branching network have benefited from its efforts, he added.
