Conway, who previously served as the president/CEO of the Pennsylvania Restaurant and Lodging Association for 12 years, was named CEO Sept. 18. He succeeds retiring president/CEO Jim McCormack, and is the PCUA's fifth chief executive since it was organized in 1934 (Life is a Highway Oct. 29).
"Considering the burdensome regulatory climate today, and the economic and legislative uncertainties facing our industry, it is more important than ever to have a strong voice representing Pennsylvania's credit unions," said Conway.
Conway also served as president/CEO of the Harrisburg Regional Chamber and the Chamber of Business and Industry of Centre County.
He began his career in the district office of U.S. Rep Bill Clinger (R), served as executive director of the Governor's Action Team under Gov. Tom Ridge, and ran for Congress in Pennsylvania's 5th district.
