Dave Fleming
Dave began his career working at Magnavox Credit Union in 1973 as a loan officer/collector. The credit union eventually became Philips Electronics Federal Credit Union, and Dave eventually became President/ CEO. The credit union, headquartered in Fort Wayne, serves members across the country through a network that includes branches in small communities and manufacturing facilities of the Magnavox and Philips companies. The name of the credit union was changed to Partners 1st FCU during Dave’s tenure. Today it serves more than 37,000 members. He has been an active member of numerous community and charitable organizations in northeast Indiana, and he served on the board of the Northeastern Chapter of Credit Unions. After retiring from the Partners 1st FCU, Dave was a volunteer board member for Union Baptist Church FCU in Fort Wayne, a credit union that he helped to develop. He has served credit unions throughout Indiana on various League committees and as a member of the League board of directors from 2008-17. He was chairman of the board from 2013-14.

Jerry Walters
Doug True
In 1988, Doug came to what was then known as Indiana Telco Federal Credit Union as a management trainee and he has risen to the position of President/CEO of that same credit union, now FORUM CU. He was always someone who could combine the needs of credit unions with emerging technology, and a highlight of his early years with the credit union was the development of the TAPS® lending software solution that was used at FORUM CU as well as at credit unions around the country. He was the first ever recipient of the League's Emerging Leadership Award, and his skills and talent have been recognized with the CUES Technology Executive Award and Rising 100 Award. His biggest contribution to the next generation of credit union leaders in Indinaa is the development of the League's ignite initiative. More than 100 igniters have been part of the program which is in its eleventh year. Doug currently serves on the League's Audit & Finance, Governmental Affairs and Products & Services Committees, and he was a member of the League board of directors from 2008-17. He was chairman of the board from 2014-15.
