CFPB Names Credit Union Advisory Council Members
Fifteen people have been named to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new Credit Union Advisory Council.
The council members, all from credit unions under the $10 billion asset mark that would move them into direct oversight by the agency, will provide the agency with feedback on its policy development, research, rule-making and engagement functions.
The Credit Union Advisory Council selections include Carla Decker, the CEO of the $49 million District Government Employees FCU in Washington, D.C., whose nomination to the NCUA Board was withdrawn earlier this year.
The credit union council members will serve two-year terms and not be eligible for reappointment. The first meeting is Oct. 11, the agency said.
NAFCU said it nominated four members of the council: John Buckley of the $122 million Gerber FCU in Fremont, Mich., Mitch Klein of the $4 billion Police & Fire FCU in Philadelphia; Camille Shillenn of the $40 million Unified People’s FCU in Cheyenne, Wyo., and David Wright of the $43 million Services Center FCU in Yankton, S.D.
The other 10 members are, NAFCU said:
* Bernard Balsis, $20 million IEG FCU, Hilo, Hawaii
* Rose Bartolomucci, $117 million Towpath CU, Fairlawn, Ohio
* Gary Bell, $102 million Cooperative Center FCU, Berkeley, Calif.
* Ron Ehrenreich, $19.3 million Syracuse Cooperative FCU, Syracuse, N.Y.
* Kevin Foster-Keddie, $1.7 billion Washington State Employees CU, Olympia, Wash.
* Lily Lo, $11.3 million Northeast Community FCU, San Francisco
* Maria Martinez, $114 million Border Federal CU, Del Rio, Texas

The CFPB also created community bank and consumer advisory boards.
