BOISE, Idaho (11/13/12)--Idaho Credit Union League President/CEO Alan Cameron has announced his plans to retire on June 30. He informed the league's board of directors on Nov. 8.
Cameron has served as president/CEO of the league and its wholly owned subsidiary League Services Inc., since 2000 and as the league's retained legal counsel and lobbyist since 1977.
During his tenure, Cameron has fought for the rights of more than one-half million Idaho credit union members and their credit unions, and served national and international members through the league's partnership with the credit unions of the Solomon Islands. He has served on several committees and task forces for the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).
Cameron served as chair of CUNA's Consumer Protection Subcommittee and as chair of the State Issues Advocacy Committee of the American Association of Credit Union Leagues. He was as a member of the Federal Reserve Board's Consumer Advisory Council for three years. In Idaho, Cameron served as treasurer of the Hispanic Financial Education Coalition, treasurer of the Consumer Information Council, and was on the board of the Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Idaho for more than 20 years.
The league's board and staff have thrived under Cameron's leadership, the league said. His passion for credit unions and their members has been a beacon during a time of increasing regulatory burden and financial upheaval, the league added. In announcing its leader's retirement the league called Cameron a trusted friend and voice of reason to state government, business owners, regulators and credit union leaders.
"Alan has done a tremendous job representing the Idaho Credit Union League and the credit unions in Idaho and at the national level," Idaho Department of Finance Director Gavin Gee said in his remarks to the league board this week. "He enjoys an outstanding reputation and has been a pleasure to work with."
