CU*Answers Elects New Board Member

The West Michigan-based CUSO provider of core data processing, CU*Answers, has announced the election of Don Mills, CEO of Alpena Alcona Area Credit Union, to its Board of Directors.  Alpena Alcona Area (27K members, $238M) joined the CU*Answer network in 2005, and serves members in the northern Michigan area from 8 locations.

According to CU*Answers, the election was held last month at its Annual Stockholders Meeting, one of the many events hosted by the CUSO during its Leadership Conference week of events.  Mr. Mills was chosen from a pool of three candidates, all of which are Michigan-based client/owners.   He joins incumbents Vickie Schmitzer (Frankenmuth CU), Scott McFarland of newly rebranded Honor Credit Union (formerly known as BTCU), Dave Wright (Services Center FCU, Lankton, SD), Jeff Jorgensen (Sioux Empire FCU, Sioux Falls, SD), Chris Butler (Community CU, Lacrosse), and Dean Wilson (Focus CU, Wauwatosa, WI).

In his role as director, Mr. Mills looks forward to working on behalf of the CUSO owners and clients to ensure the delivery of products and services that will meet the needs of their members.  “Our industry is facing daunting challenges that require careful planning and emphasis on collaboration,” states Mills.  Our goal as CU*Answers owners and clients is to work together to meet members’ financial needs with a value proposition second to none.  I am a firm believer that by working together we can achieve great accomplishments,” he concludes.
