The National Credit Union Foundation has announced its search for an executive director to replace previous director Steve Delfin. Delfin left the Foundation at the end of last year to take the helm at America's Charities.
The foundation's board of directors, at a recent meeting, appointed a search committee to consider candidates. According to foundation Board Chairman Allan Kemp McMorris, president/CEO of Oakland County Credit Union, the board aims to hire an executive director this spring.
Gary J. Oakland, president/CEO of BECU was named chairman of the search committee.
Oakland said among the key requirements for the foundation leader is that he or she enjoys a deep background in credit unions and is recognized as a leader in the movement.
"Since this individual will be working with credit unions to solicit and maintain their support for the foundation, we hope that included in his or her career profile will be a deep understanding of credit unions, as well as a strong network of contacts among them," Oakland said.
