Longtime Michigan CU Regulator Retiring (Misc News: December 29, 2010)
Roger Little, the veteran Michigan credit union regulator and past chairman of the National Association of Credit Union Supervisors, is retiring Jan. 1.
Little, the deputy commissioner of credit unions for the Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation, has been with the state agency since 1984, according to CU Times in a story posted Dec. 29.
He has been a member of the NASCUS board since 1999 and was its chairman from 2003-2005.
“He has been an influential contributor to the NASCUS organization and has made significant contributions to the state credit union system during his state regulatory career,” said NASCUS President/CEO Mary Martha Fortney, citing his commitment to state’s rights and the strength of the state CU charter.
He has been an active participant in the NASCUS Accreditation Program, serving on a number of Accreditation Review Teams over the years and has frequently testified before Congressional committees as well as co-authoring a NASCUS white paper.
Little started his career as an examiner, then moved up to examiner supervisor and was eventually promoted to deputy commissioner.
A spokesman for the Michigan OFIR said no replacement for Little has been made.
