Minnesota foundation elects board officers (09/03/2009)
ST. PAUL, Minn. (9/4/09)--The Minnesota Credit Union Foundation
(MNCUF) Board of Directors has named its table officers and elected directors at its annual meeting in July. These board members will serve staggered terms:
* Chuck Albrecht, Mid-Minnesota FCU, Baxter; * Mary Hansen, Mayo Employees FCU, Rochester; * Lynn Kothe, North Memorial FCU, Robbinsdale; * Kristi Mukomela, Novation CU, Oakdale; and * Judy Root, Bluestone FCU, Eagan.
Mukomela will continue to serve as board chair, with Kothe continuing as vice chair and Root as secretary/treasurer. Since attaining status as a public charity in 2007, the MNCUF board completed a strategic planning process to examine the overall organization to strengthen the foundation's governance structure and broaden its focus. It revised its bylaws, created and altered operational policies, and established a greater Web presence. MNCUF will add two new board members this fall, bringing the total to seven. Lon Krueger, retired CEO from Accentra CU, is working for MNCUF as a volunteer to assist implementing the strategic plan. Recently, MNCUF provided funds for:
* The Minnesota Credit Union Network's Small Credit Union Conference; * The Cooperative Network's Youth Leadership Conference; * Financial education activities and scholarships through the Minnesota Family Involvement Council; * Charitable giving to Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare through Minnesota Credit Unions for Kids; * The Homes for Our Troops project to support construction of a home for a wounded Iraq War veteran; * Disaster relief for credit unions in the state; and * Educational grants for credit union professionals and volunteers.
