President & CEO
Bio: Lucy Ito joined the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS) in November 2014 as president and CEO. NASCUS is the national voice of the state credit union system, advocating for a robust dual-charter credit union system that mutually and equitably benefits both state and federally chartered credit unions. As the professional organization for state credit union regulators, NASCUS represents the state agencies that supervise 2,020 state-chartered credit unions and $934 billion in assets—just over one-half of all U.S. credit union assets, as of December 31, 2020.
Ms. Ito currently serves on the International Credit Union Regulators’ Network (ICURN) Board of Directors, the State Issues Committee of the American Association of Credit Union Leagues (AACUL), and the NCUA-SSA Joint Supervisory Working Group. She is honored to be participating in the African-American Credit Union Coalition’s Cross Cultural Exchange Program, a newly launched national pilot initiative.
Immediately before joining NASCUS, Ms. Ito served as the executive vice president and chief operations officer at the California and Nevada Credit Unions Leagues (CCUL/NCUL), where she provided oversight to all four of the Leagues’ divisions—Advocacy, Member Solutions, Strategic Innovation and Planning, and Finance and Human Resources. Prior to that, Ms. Ito was vice president of the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), responsible for technical programs and legislative and regulatory issues primarily in Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Asia, and the Pacific.
