CU Assoc. Of New Mexico Gets New Board, Officers
ALBUQURQUE, N.M. (6/12/13)--A new board of directors has been chosen for the Credit Union Association of New Mexico, and a new slate of officers was elected at CUANM's annual convention last week, under revised bylaws adopted this year.

Formerly, directors were elected from eight geographical regions statewide. The revised bylaws created three classes based on the number of members in a credit union. Each class will be represented by two directors, and there will be one at-large director. Class A credit unions have 25,000 or more members, Class B has 3,500 to 24,999, and Class C has 3,499 or fewer members.

New directors are:

Class A:

Harold Dixon, CEO, State Employees CU, Sante Fe; and

Ron Moorehead, Chief Financial Officer, First Financial CU, Albuquerque.

Class B:

Chris Fitzgerald, CEO, Rio Grande CU, Albuquerque; and

Ronnie Johnston, CEO, Artesia (N.M.) CU.

Class C:

Karen Griffo, CEO, Roswell (N.M.) Community FCU; and 

Matt Schmidt, CEO, Los Alamos (N.M.) Schools CU.

At Large:

Judy Carrasco, CEO, Financial Security CU, Carlsbad.

The officers elected under the revised bylaws are Chris Fitzgerald, chair, and Harold Dixon, vice chair. The secretary and treasurer positions are now combined and Ron Moorehead fills that position. They will serve a one-year term.
