(Aug. 20, 2021) Continuing and new leadership for the state system was also seated during the NASCUS Annual Meeting, held in conjunction with S3.
Serving as officers for 2021-22 for the NASCUS Regulator Board are:
- Chairman: Rose Conner (administrator, North Carolina Credit Union Division)
- Vice Chairman: Janet Powell (chief of regulation and supervision – credit unions, Oregon Dept. of Consumer and Business Services)

Joining the three as directors on the regulator board are:

Members of the regulator board serve three-year terms (Kolhoff and Ford were elected to new terms this year). However, one member is appointed to serve a one-year term by the chairman; O’Neill holds that seat for 2021-22.
Meanwhile, the NASCUS Credit Union Advisory Council also selected its leadership for the upcoming year:
- Mike Williams, president and CEO, Colorado CU (Colo.), chairman;
- Mike Ryan, senior vice president and general counsel, BECU, (Wash.), vice chairman;

Like the regulator board members, directors of the CUAC serve three-year terms (Williams, Nelson and Tierney won new terms in elections this year). However, like the regulator board, one member is appointed by the chairman to serve a one-year term; Sink was appointed for the 2021-22 term to that seat.
