Two new directors from Region 5-Arkansas were seated at the board meeting. In the Asset Category One position is Linda Stanton, president/CEO of Union Pacific of Arkansas FCU, North Little Rock, who was elected to fill the position open due to Campbell's election to Asset Category Two. Sherry Gray, president/CEO, Northeast Arkansas FCU, Blytheville, was elected to fill the Asset Category Three position due to the resignation of Allen Brown.
The league's board of directors also voted to add three associate directorships to represent credit union volunteers and young credit union professionals.
Curtis Collins, vice-chair of the board of directors for JSC FCU, Houston, was elected to serve in the volunteer associate directorship position.
Joshua Atkinson, risk specialist with United Community CU, Galena Park, Texas, was elected to one of the young professional associate directorships.
Nikki Moore, executive vice president, Space City CU, Houston, will serve as the other young professional associate director.
Associate directors will be encouraged to participate in all board discussions and deliberations as non-voting members of the league board. The three associate directorships are two-year terms.
