CU System
Former NAFCU chairman Dave Miller dies
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (4/17/12)--Dave Miller, former CEO of Kalamazoo District Bell FCU, died April 11 in Kalamazoo at the age of 72. He was instrumental in forming the campaign that led to the Credit Union Membership Access Act.

Miller served as chairman of the National Association of Federal Credit Unions for 12 years and treasurer for three years, and was active in state level credit union organizations.

With the late Pete DiSylvester, former Credit Union National Association chairman, Miller was involved in forming the Credit Union Campaign for Consumer Choice,  an advocacy campaign that resulted in the passage of H.R. 1151, the Credit Union Membership Access Act.

The campaign was formed in response to banks winning a 1996 federal appeals court ruling that denied federal credit unions the ability to serve multiple employer groups.  The case went to the U.S. Supreme Court, which upheld the ruling and led to credit unions' advocacy for legislation to preserve multiple group fields of membership.

Among the provisions in the act was the authority for employment-based credit unions to serve more than one sponsor group.

Miller was CEO of the credit union for 43 years until his retirement in 2009.  He also represented the Credit Acceptance Corp. to the Federal Reserve Board.  He is survived by his wife, Nancy; three sons, two sisters and several nieces and nephews (Battle Creek Enquirer via Legacy.com April 13).
