WASHINGTON-NAFCU’s Board of directors broke with tradition this year by naming Diane Furnas, CEO of Southwest Airlines Federal Credit Union, as its first female chair. Furnas took the helm at NAFCU at the end of July. Immediate past chairman, Three Rivers Federal Credit Union CEO Jim Mills, announced plans to retire from the board in February. He had served six years on NAFCU’s Board and three as chairman. He cited his credit union and his granddaughter as reasons for his decision. Furnas has 35 years of experience in the credit unions, including founding the $133 million Southwest Airlines FCU. Her goals for NAFCU are to maintain the current path, “especially the role of sustaining and growing the federal charter.” Furnas also serves as chair of NAFCU Services Corporation.
