CUNA CEO search committee holds initial meeting
WASHINGTON (9/21/09)--The first meeting of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) committee to find a successor for the association's president and CEO was held in conjunction with the 75th anniversary celebration of the organization last week in Estes Park, Colo. The committee, appointed by CUNA Chairman Kris Mecham, is charged with finding a successor to Dan Mica, who announced he plans to step down as CEO in January 2011 after 13 years of service in the position. According to committee Chairman Harriet May, who is president/CEO of GECU in El Paso, Texas, and CUNA board vice chairman, the initial meeting focused on the selection of an executive search firm. "Generally, our aim is to select a search firm in November and begin the formal search in December," May said. The search committee consists of a chairman and four representatives from each of the four classes of CUNA directors: Class A (CUs with fewer than 20,000 members); Class B (20,000 to 73,999); Class C (74,000 and above) and Class D (state league presidents). Additionally there is one at-large member. Also serving on the committee are:
* Patricia Wesenberg, CEO, Central City CU, Stevens Point, WI (Class A) * Eugene Foley, CEO, Harvard University Employees CU, Cambridge, MA (Class B) * Tom Dorety, CEO, Suncoast Schools FCU, Tampa, FL (Class C) * Brett Thompson, CEO, Wisconsin Credit Union League (Class D) * Rudy Hanley, CEO, Schools First FCU, Santa Ana, CA (At-Large)
CUNA Chair Mecham serves ex officio on the committee, as does Dan Mica, who serves as the committee's liaison to CUNA management.
