LSCU announces new Board Chairman
The League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU) announced a new chairman of the board following its Annual Business meeting held on June 17 at the 11th Annual Business Meeting.
Brian Akin, president/CEO of North Georgia Credit Union succeeds Tina Williams, president/CEO of Mobile Educators CU, who honorably served two years as the chair.
“I know it will be difficult to follow the outstanding leadership exhibited by Chair Tina Williams as she has guided the LSCU Board,” said incoming chairman Brian Akin. “She’s left the chairmanship in a great spot, and I hope to continue that momentum over the next two years as we continue to adjust operations during the ever-shifting landscape caused by the pandemic. I embrace the opportunity to help our credit union leaders and member-owners to continue to afford life and to navigate this new normal.”
The Executive Committee for the LSCU board is as follows:
- Chairman – Brian Akin, President/CEO, North Georgia Credit Union, Toccoa, Ga.
- Chairman-elect – Kevin Johnson, President/CEO, Suncoast Credit Union, Tampa, Fla.
- Vice-Chairman – Henry Armstrong, President/CEO of Auburn University Federal Credit Union, Auburn, Ala.
- Secretary – Richard Skaggs, President/CEO of USF Federal Credit Union, Tampa, Fla.
- Treasurer – Caryl Greene, President/CEO of Members First Credit Union, Pensacola, Fla.
“This is an exciting time for the League of Southeastern Credit Unions and Affiliates. We consolidated less than a year ago, adding the state of Georgia to the League and already, great things are happening,” said Chairman Akins. “COVID-19 definitely slowed down some plans, and we all had to pivot and really concentrate on serving our respective credit union members. As we get back to business with the LSCU, we have the strength of our tri-state credit union leaders working in cooperation to elevate the profile of credit unions in our states and to ensure the people-helping-people philosophy continues to grow. We have a strong leadership team, and together, we can help shape the future of the credit union industry.”
