Three New MCUL Board Officer Appointments Announced
During the recent September MCUL Board Meeting, the MCUL Board elected three new Board Officers: Chairwoman Heather Luciani, Vice Chairman Dean Trudeau and Secretary/Treasurer Carma Peters.
The League would like to thank Karen Church (CEO, ELGA Credit Union) and Dan Baines (CEO, Bloom Credit Union) for their leadership while serving as MCUL Board Officers, most recently as Chairwoman and Vice Chairman, respectively. Church and Trudeau will continue to remain on MCUL’s Board as Board Directors of District VI and II.
“Karen and Dan have been fabulous leaders and we’re glad to work with them on the board in a non-officer capacity for a bit longer,” said MCUL CEO Dave Adams.
“We are also excited to announce the election of our new MCUL Board officers. Heather, Dean and Carma have proven themselves to be great individual leaders within the Michigan credit union community and on the MCUL Board, with nearly 50 years of combined CEO experience and numerous board placements elsewhere in the financial services industry,” continued Adams.
The League is grateful to have their guidance and expertise leading the way and looks forward to their strong leadership.
