NASCUS Thanks Roger Little for Years of Service to NASCUS and the State System

Arlington, Va. — Roger Little, esteemed state credit union regulator and long time NASCUS Board member, is retiring from his state regulatory career January 1, 2011.

Little, the deputy commissioner of credit unions for the Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation, has been an influential contributor to the NASCUS organization for more than 12 years as a Board member and Past Chairman.

"Roger has made significant contributions to NASCUS as an organization and to the state credit union system during this state regulatory career," said NASCUS President and CEO Mary Martha Fortney. "On behalf of state regulators and NASCUS, we thank Roger for his service to NASCUS and commitment to state's rights and the strength of the state credit union charter."

Little has served on the NASCUS Board of Directors since 1999, and was NASCUS Chairman from 2003-2005. He was also an active participant in the NASCUS Accreditation Program, serving on a number of Accreditation Review Teams over the years. Little has testified before committees in the U.S. House and Senate during his involvement with NASCUS, as well as co-authored a NASCUS white paper.

He began his career at the Michigan agency in 1984 as a credit union examiner. He later served as an examiner supervisor before his role as deputy commissioner where he was responsible for the oversight of Michigan's more than 200 state-chartered credit unions. "NASCUS and state regulators wish Roger all the best in his retirement and again thank him for his many years of service," added Fortney.
