Carolinas league meets new NCUA director
ATLANTA, Ga. (3/10/14)--Leadership of the Carolinas Credit Union League (CCUL) met its new National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) representative, Region III Director Myra Toeppe, last week in Atlanta.
Toeppe was named director in September, replacing Herb Yolles, who retired at the end of 2013 after 35 years of service with the NCUA. Before joining NCUA, Toeppe worked for nearly 25 years in financial services regulation, including stints with the Office of Thrift Supervision and the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta.
CCUL leaders also met with Dave Hibshman, assistant regional director of programs.
"With last year's retirement of Herb Yolles, the leadership team at Region III has changed," said John Radebaugh, CCUL president/CEO (In the Loop March 5). "We appreciated their time and the opportunity to share the concerns of some credit unions in the Carolinas."
Radebaugh traveled with Dan Schline, CCUL senior vice president of association services, and Jeanne Couchois, vice president, regulatory/compliance counsel, to meet the new representatives.
"We view regulatory advocacy as (a) core function of the league," Schline said. "Developing relationships with regulators and having an ongoing dialogue about how rules and regulations are impacting credit unions in the Carolinas is central to that process."
