NCUA's Tawana James Retires
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (1/6/14)--Office of Minority and Women Inclusion Director and longtime National Credit Union Administration employee Tawana James has retired, effective Jan. 3.

James has worked at the agency since 1980 and led the OMWI since it was officially opened in January 2011. She also helped to establish OMWI.

NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said James "took on the formidable task of creating a new office with broad responsibilities and succeeded," and also "provided valuable support for credit unions serving diverse communities."

James has more than 30 years of service with NCUA and has served as director of the agency's Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives, regional director, deputy executive director, deputy director of the Office of Examination and Insurance, and Associate Regional Director of Operations. She holds a bachelor's degree in accounting from Towson State University and attended the Harvard Kennedy School of Government's Program for Senior Managers.

NCUA Associate General Counsel for Administrative Law Linda Dent will serve as acting OMWI director until a permanent replacement is selected.
