ARLINGTON, Va. (11/2/15)--Two credit union regulators have been elected to seats on the board of the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS). One state credit union supervisor has been appointed to a NASCUS board seat.
Elections and appointments have also been made to the Credit Union Advisory Council of NASCUS.
Mary Ellen O’Neill and John Kolhoff were both elected to three-year terms on the NASCUS Board, the result of elections held among the regulator membership this fall. O’Neill--who was re-elected to a seat on the board is the director of the financial institution division of the Connecticut Department of Banking. O’Neill is also the chair-elect of the association. Kolhoff is the director of the office of credit unions for the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Services.
Tamilee Smull, manager of the credit union division of the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions, has been appointed by NASCUS Chairman Steve Pleger to a one-year term on the NASCUS board, as provided by the association’s bylaws (one seat on the board is appointed by the chairman). Pleger is senior deputy commissioner of the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance.
Only regulators may be elected or appointed to seats on the NASCUS board.
