WASHINGTON (10/18/10)--Defense Credit Union Council (DCUC) President/CEO Roland "Arty" Arteaga last week was named as one of twelve members of President Barack Obama’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability.
The advisory council will advise the President on ways to promote and enhance overall financial literacy, financial education efforts, and the general understanding of how to effectively use financial products. In a release, Obama said that the council would “greatly serve the American people as they work to improve financial literacy and promote services that will benefit consumers.” “I look forward to their sound advice on these issues as we work together in the months and years ahead,” Obama added. Arteaga, who has led the DCUC since early 2000, serves as the primary liaison between the Pentagon and military post-based credit unions. Arteaga also served with the U.S. Army from 1971 until 1999.
