As previously announced, Maggie Pope, CEO/manager of Peru FCU, was elected to a three-year term by the Association’s membership. Pope was elected in the asset tier for credit unions with up to $25 million in assets.
“Both Maggie and Eric are exceptional credit union leaders with an undeniable dedication to our statewide movement,” said Association President/CEO William J.

I look forward to working with them to advance our mission and the entire statewide credit union movement.”
The Association’s board of directors is a volunteer group, elected from the membership by its peers. The group of credit union leaders provides the Association with strategic guidance and ensures that the Association continues to improve the ways in which it serves its members.
