01/08/2010 05:00 pm
Terry West, president/CEO of Vystar CU in Jacksonville, and Rich Helber, incoming CEO of Tropical Financial in Miramar will help convene the CUNA Corporate CU Task Force in 2010. Helber is the LSCU Board chair and he will represent the LSCU on the task force. West will once again serve as chair of the committee. The Corporate CU Task Force will go over the NCUA’s 252 page plan to revise the corporate credit union system. The Task Force will also issue a summary for CUNA Members. The NCUA’s plan was presented at the last NCUA open board meeting in November and the NCUA is still soliciting comments on the proposals. Credit unions are in the middle of the 90 day comment period. Many of the Task Force’s ideas were reflected in the NCUA’s proposal.
Credit unions also have two opportunities over the next two months to talk directly to NCUA chair Debbie Matz. The NCUA is holding two town hall meetings with the second one being in Orlando February 4th. The Buena Vista Palace Hotel and Spa will be the backdrop for the 9am to noon meeting.
