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CEO of the $49 million District Government Employees FCU in Washington, D.C., whose nomination to the NCUA Board was withdrawn earlier this year.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.
