WASHINGTON-CUNA held a luncheon last week in honor of Debbie Matz’ retirement after more than 25 years of service in the federal government. Most recently, of course, Matz served on the NCUA Board from January 2002 through the end of this September. “It was really great to catch up and see everybody,” she said of the reception. Though Matz said she does miss it, she admitted, “I didn’t realize how much I needed some time off.” She added, “The board’s in very capable hands.” New NCUA Board Members Rodney Hood and Gigi Hyland, as well as Chairman JoAnn Johnson attended the luncheon. CUNA President and CEO Dan Mica presented Matz with a resolution during the Nov. 28 luncheon at Credit Union House. The resolution, commending her work at NCUA, read in part: WHEREAS, Debbie Matz has been an effective regulator, committed to the growth and development of credit unions; WHEREAS, Debbie Matz has been a strong advocate of credit union service for people from all economic levels; WHEREAS the work of Debbie Matz on member business lending issues exemplified her ability to emphasize safety and soundness priorities while responding to credit unions’ need for flexibility in their operations; and WHEREAS her signature PALS initiative has proven to be both an innovative and beneficial resource for the credit union movement. NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the Credit Union National Association recognizes Debbie Matz’s outstanding service and dedication to credit unions and the National Credit Union Administration; and be it FURTHER RESOLVED that CUNA commends her leadership and the numerous initiatives she championed while at NCUA to expand credit union opportunities to serve their members. Though retiring from federal government work, Matz said she is not ready to retire from working. She is still looking for a job, preferably in the credit union community, in the Washington, D.C.-area. “When the right thing comes around, I’ll know it,” she said. -
