WASHINGTON (3/13/12)--Carla Leon-Decker requested that her nomination to the National Credit Union Administration board be withdrawn and that request was honored by the White House Monday.
Leon-Decker had been named as the White House candidate for a term on the NCUA that would expire Aug. 2, 2017.
León-Decker would have taken an NCUA board spot vacated by the pending departure of Gigi Hyland, whose six-year term on the NCUA board ended in August. Hyland is still serving as an NCUA board member.
León-Decker is the current president/CEO of D.C. Government Employees FCU and has also served as operations manager and president/CEO of PAHO/WHO FCU and branch manager of Transportation FCU.
She is also a credit union development educator and director of the Network of Latino Credit Unions & Professionals.
