Dan Mica is stepping down as the president and chief executive of the Credit Union National Association, effective January 2011. Mica, who has served as the CUNA CEO for the past 13 years, told the trade group's board and executive management team Thursday.

"My mentor, the late Rep. Paul G. Rogers, often said an individual should spend no more than 10 years in any particular role or position," Mica said in a press release. "I love what I do here at CUNA, and I deeply care about the credit union movement — so I have stayed a bit longer than Paul's advice would allow."

Richard McBride, CUNA's chief operating officer and chief of staff, also announced he is stepping down in January 2011. CUNA Chairman Kris Mecham said a committee will be formed to find Mica's successor and said Mica will participate in the search. Mica was a Democratic member of Congress from Florida from 1979 to 1989. He joined CUNA in July 1996.
