Virginia league to relocate some jobs to Richmond
LYNCHBURG, Va. (1/16/13)--The Virginia Credit Union League is relocating members of its staff--including President Rick Pillow--to new office space in the state capitol of Richmond, Va., to support the league's governmental affairs and regulatory work.

"This is a game-changing decision for the Virginia League and will enhance our advocacy work on behalf of member credit unions," said League President Rick Pillow. "We are a respected and effective advocate for Virginia's credit unions, but a permanent presence in the state capital will raise our visibility and keep us connected to lawmakers and regulators."

Officially headquartered in Lynchburg, about 115 miles from Richmond, the league has discussed moving some or all of its operations to Richmond a number of times during the past two decades.

The organization has rented office space in Richmond to facilitate its lobbying and regulatory work, but this will be the first time it has had a permanent presence in Richmond or has permanently assigned more than one or two staff members to the Richmond area.

By January 2014, five of the league's 24 staff members--Pillow and three of the league's five management team members--will be permanently assigned to the Richmond office.

No positions will be cut, and league staff now working at the Lynchburg office will continue to be headquartered there.

Plans for the Richmond office include a reception hall, with sufficient space to host legislative events and credit union meetings.
