I think NCUA’s proposal for more disclosure of credit union executive compensation it is a bad idea. The board is responsible for such decisions and I feel that there is plenty of oversight both internally and externally.
I think that it would open up deals that would hide income. I think that for large public companies CEO income is very immaterial; but in small credit unions it would become a gossip situation and counter-productive and encourage members to micro-manage salaries. Let the board members do what they have been entrusted to do by the members and do not provide obstacles for them to overcome.
