Roger Little, the veteran Michigan credit union regulator and past chairman of the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors, is retiring Jan. 1.
Little, the deputy commissioner of credit unions for the Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation, began his career as an examiner with the state agency in 1984.
He has been a member of the NASCUS board since 1999 and was its chairman from 2003-2005.
"He has been an influential contributor to the NASCUS organization and has made significant contributions to the state credit union system during his state regulatory career," said NASCUS President/CEO Mary Martha Fortney, citing his commitment to state's rights and the strength of the state CU charter.
He has been an active participant in the NASCUS Accreditation Program, serving on a number of Accreditation Review Teams over the years and has frequently testified before Congressional committees as well as co-authoring a NASCUS white paper.
After starting as an examiner, he moved up to examiner supervisor and was eventually promoted to deputy commissioner.
A spokesman for the Michigan OFIR said a replacement for Little has not been made.
"NASCUS and state regulators wish Roger all the best in his retirement and again thank him for his many years of service," Fortney said.
