Vacaville-based Travis Credit Union has announced the appointment of Tim L. Truesdale, the president and CEO of Community Resource Associates Inc., to its board of directors.
Truesdale brings more than 32 years of leadership and impressive community service experience to Travis Credit Union’s board.
Truesdale was appointed to the board on Aug. 30 to fill a vacancy and will be subject to election in April, according to the credit union by-laws.
He also is participating in the Travis Credit Union Volunteer-at-large Program, which he will complete in December.
Truesdale is president and CEO of Community Resource Associates Inc. in Antioch where he is responsible for bringing long-term affordable housing to seniors and to clientele that cannot afford to live near their places of work.
“Tim brings more than three decades of experience working with nonprofit housing development and will be an instrumental advisor to the Travis Credit Union Board of Directors,” said Curt Newland, Travis Credit Union’s Chairman of the Board, in a news release. “His experience, which includes leadership, community collaborations and finance, complement our board well. We are very pleased to be working with him.”
Truesdale said as a longtime Metro 1 Credit Union member and now a Travis Credit Union member, he was “impressed with the significant financial impact Travis Credit Union has in the lives of its members and the community.”
“The credit union is a financial leader and a socially responsible corporate citizen in the communities it serves,” Truesdale said. “As a volunteer director, I look forward to working with the credit union, in an advisory capacity, to represent the interests of all its members.”
Truesdale has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Northwestern Business College. He is a board member and treasurer of STAND! For Families Free of Violence, board member for the Lone Tree Golf and Event Center and past board member and Housing Committee chairman for the Pittsburgh Economic & Housing Development Corp.
