Magill Leaving CUNA
John Magill, CUNA executive vice president for government affairs and special assistant to the president, announced Monday he is leaving the association on Sept. 5 after eight and a half years.
“It is expected that a new president/CEO will be named in a few weeks, and he or she will need your full support and attention, which I’m confident you will provide,” Magill wrote in an announcement to his colleagues. “So the timing is right for me to step into my next challenge in our nation’s capital, where so many of us are fortunate to work and call home.”
“John Magill has been a significant leader in CUNA's advocacy team for almost nine years, and we wish him well,” Hampel said.
Magill joined CUNA in May 2006 as senior vice president of legislative affairs after spending 30 years on Capitol Hill. He has been EVP for government affairs since September of 2011.
“Magill provided strategic counsel on legislative and political issues while overseeing the day to day operations of those key advocacy areas. He also handled a number of administrative and other related matters inherent in the daily operations of the CUNA Washington office,” CUNA said in a release.
Magill told CU Times he will make an announcement about his future plans at the proper time.
“It’s been a fulfilling, rewarding experience and important part of my life, and I’ll treasure many of the friendships made along the way. My next steps have not been finalized, but you can expect that I won’t be going very far,” Magill said in his announcement.
