WASHINGTON -- Terrin Griffiths, economist and industry analyst at the California/Nevada Credit Union Leagues and Samuel Inman, chief financial officer of Community First Credit Union of Jacksonville, Fla., have joined the Credit Union Economics Group.
The 10-member group provides credit unions with forecasts and analyses.
Griffiths compiles and analyzes industry data for use by executives of member credit unions and the leagues' lobbyists. She previously worked as a senior field economist for the U.S. Department of Labor.
Inman is responsible for Community First's overall financial condition and developing and implementing long-term strategies for the credit union. He has worked for the credit union in several different capacities since 1990.
PCUA Gives $100K to NCUF
HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The Pennsylvania Credit Union Association will make a $100,000 donation in the National Credit Union Foundation's Community Investment Fund.
Michael Wishnow, a spokesman for the PCUA, said the foundation's board decided to invest $100,000 with the CIF in a three-year certificate of deposit after the Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation conducted a fundraising drive for the program. The CIF is the foundation's principal means of financing its grant making programs. The association had made individual donations to both the state and national foundations in the past but had never invested in the CIF.
The CIF is a program where credit unions and state trade associations invest funds in U.S. Central, and the interest earned is split between the investor, the National Credit Union Foundation and the state foundation, according to the PCUA.
