On February 25, Dennis Pierce, CEO of CommunityAmerica Credit Union (CACU) was elected as the chairman of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Board of Directors. The meeting was held during the first day of CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) in Washington D.C.
“I am looking forward to an exciting year working with the CUNA Board on our goals for this year,” says Pierce. “One of our priorities will be to look at the effectiveness of our three-tier system. We will also work on the 'Unite for Good' vision for our system. It is a great honor to represent the members of CUNA and especially the credit unions of Missouri.”
Pierce joined CUNA’s board of directors eight years ago. He has previously served as a vice-chairman, secretary and treasurer.
To honor this achievement, a reception was held later that day. Pierce’s fellow credit union professionals from Missouri stopped by to congratulate him. His family was also present to celebrate with him.
More pictures of the reception will be posted to the Missouri Credit Union Association’s Facebook page later this week.
