DENVER For John C. Dill, the last nine months have been an eye-opener for the former Washington, D.C. lawyer on things that needed to be done to stop “underperforming” operations while perking up lobbying activities within the Colorado/ Wyoming Credit Union Leagues. Dill, a well-known Denver lobbyist before being named president/CEO of the league in March, acknowledges that with changes being made in card service units and the closing of a league-run branch the trade group is set to take on broad new initiatives in several areas. “In 2005 we will be refocusing our for-profit business to better reflect the marketplace and credit union needs including those of mid-to-small sized credit unions,” explained Dill citing Internet and human relations products and services. While the League is making cuts in card services and the branch staff with a loss of 16 jobs, Dill said the organization would be strengthening government affairs, advocacy and communications “with strategies such as our Legislative Liaison program designed to create government affairs contacts in every credit union.” Also being tried are “online training and partnering” projects, said Dill who before taking the league job ran his own consulting firm and previously served as a legislative aide to an Oklahoma congressman on the House Ways and Means Committee.
