Colorado League Getting Close To Hiring New President
DENVER - The Colorado Credit Union League, which has been without a CEO since last September, is looking to fill the job "by the end of the month or the first few weeks of February," according to League Chairman Carl Hedrick. In picking a new president, the League is following the pattern of Utah and other states in focusing on political advocacy and legislative skills considering the trade group wants to "be prepared at both the state and national levels" in case of banker tax attacks, said Hedrick, who also is president of Denver Community FCU. Heading up the national search efforts has been EFL Associates, a Kansas City-based recruitment firm, which says the average time for selecting a non-profit trade group CEO runs six months though "our firm's average is three to four months." EFL, with offices in Englewood, was hired by the League in October and says it has had inquiries from "several" other state Leagues, which it did not identify, about possible CEO searches.
