ARLINGTON, Va.-Nationwide Federal Credit Union (Columbus, Ohio) President and CEO Paula Edwards was elected to NAFCU’s board late last month, slipping into the seat currently occupied by NAFCU Chairman Jim Mills. Mills, president and CEO of Three Rivers FCU, announced earlier this year that he did not intend to run for his third term on the board. A new chairman and other table officers, positions voted on by the board members, will be elected at the June 12 NAFCU Board meeting, according to NAFCU Director of Planning, Programming, and Special Programs Joe Boyle. Edwards was elected to a three-year term as Region IV director on the NAFCU Board, running into 2006, and is eligible to run for two more terms. However, with NCUA’s regional realignment, NAFCU will also be eliminating Region IV following Edwards’ first term, Boyle pointed out. She will still be eligible to run in Region III after that, he said. In addition, Bill Cheney, president and CEO of Xerox FCU, was reelected for his second term and Navy Federal Credit Union President and CEO Brian McDonnell will be serving a third term. The Summit Federal Credit Union President and CEO Mike Vadala, director from Region I and current board secretary, was also reelected to a third term in March. All four will begin their new terms at the close of the NAFCU Annual Conference in Boston this July.
