NOTE:  A version of this story appeared in the Leaguer Monday, but only noted three seats open for the Foundation board, and the correct number is four. We apologize for the confusion. The updated information follows.

The National Credit Union Foundation is currently seeking nominations for three board seats. Volunteers may generally serve up to three terms of the duration of the term of office for the seat they are selected, as long as they are re-nominated by the Foundation Nominations Committee and re-elected by the Foundation board.

The following are currently serving in the following seats:

  • Seat 7 – Tom Dorety, President/CEO of Suncoast Credit Union in Tampa, Fla., is retiring from his credit union, making this seat vacant as he is not running for re-election;

  • Seat 16 – Howard Spencer, Director for Northland Area FCU, in Oscoda, Mich., is completing a partial three-year term on the Foundation Board.
