The NCUA-conserved Southwest Corporate Federal Credit Union, seeking industry input on its next direction, has now whittled down its volunteer "advisory council" from 140 CU executives to a 13-member executive committee.
The paring process as evidenced on the website of the now "bridge corporate" shows a diverse makeup among the 13 mostly CEOs representing client CUs from across both the South and West.
Since the advisory panel formation following the Sept. 24 conservatorship, NCUA has long said the mission of the panel is to meet and make suggestions on provider services with the council having "no oversight" over operations.
Council members, however, have taken part in a series of webinars, in-person meetings and updates including one held Wednesday in Frisco, Tex. as part of the corporate's annual "Economic Forum." Leading that session was Dianne Addington, interim CEO of Southwest Corporate and the retired Genysis CEO, who was named to the job by NCUA.
Executive committee members include Connie Roy president/CEO of the $112 million Lafayette Schools' FCU of Lafayette Louisiana; Kerry Parker, A+ FCU, Austin, Tex; Joyce Judy, Arkansas Employees FCU, Little Rock; Rodney Taylor, Barksdale FCU, Bossier, La.; David Preter, Georgia's Own CU, Atlanta; Brad Baker, GTE FCU, Tampa, Fla.; Ayn Talley, CEO, Houston Police FCU and Rick Hein, OSU FCU, Corvallis, Ore; Randy Smith, Randolph-Brooks FCU, Universal City, Texas; Tim Adams, SPCO CU, Houston; Jeff Schwarz, St. Helena Community FCU in Oregon; Michael Kloiber, Tinker FCU, Oklahoma City and Willie Jacobs, White Sands, FCU, Las Cruces, N.M.
