Following a career in the military, E.C. Williams found his true calling in the credit union movement.
He worked his way up from an entry-level position to become executive vice president/chief operating officer for MacDill FCU (now Grow Financial FCU) and GTE Financial CU, both located in Tampa, Fla. He received the CUNA Lending Council’s Phil Greer Lifetime Achievement Award on Tuesday.
“I discovered I loved the philosophy of credit unions, I loved helping members, and I was passionate about helping other employees strive to achieve their full potential,” says Williams, accepting the award from CUNA Lending Council Chair Bill Vogeney (left) and GTE Financial CU CEO Joe Brancucci (at right).
CUNA is concerned with a report on consumer testing used by the CFPB to analyze periodic statement forms for consumers in bankruptcy, but concurs with some of its findings. The bureau issued a report in February on its study.
CUNA compliance staff has received a number of questions in recent weeks regarding Internal Revenue Service W-9 forms and taxpayer identification numbers. A recent CompBlog entry lists some of those frequently asked questions, along with answers.
