Henry Meier

Nothing thrills Henry more than a controversial piece of legislation, a complicated new regulation or a groundbreaking lawsuit.  As Senior Vice President, General Counsel for the New York Credit Union Association, Henry is actively involved in all legislative, regulatory and legal issues impacting New York credit unions.  Whether he’s joining in the Association’s advocacy efforts, lending his legal expertise to the Association and its affiliate companies or arguing before the New York State Appellate Division, his voice is unique and influential.

Before joining the Association in 2006, Henry served as a counsel to the New York State Assembly Republican Conference for seven years.  There, he analyzed proposed banking legislation and briefed Assembly members on their intricacies and potential implications.

Henry is a graduate of American University in Washington, D.C., and Hofstra University’s School of Law in New York.  Born and raised on Long Island, he now lives in the Albany area with his wife and two children.

    Henry–your blog piece on Matz and the home-based CU issue is spot on. Ms. Matz’s interview to declare home-based CUs dead was predictable when CU Times contacted me and ran an item about my thoughts being contrary to her position. She lost no time in contacting the trade press after reading what CU Times wrote about my position as a former NCUA Board member. If you wish to see a copy of that article, drop me an email so I have your email address to send it to.

    Coincidentally, I was also an CUANY exec, back in the day. 😉

    Dear Henry,

    Two Questions if I may;

    1st:) Can Homestead Act Exemption value in NY be increased from its $150k value?
    **Certain States do allow for this.**

    2nd:) Also, can a wife of 28 years increase the value to $300K, though not on deed?
    **Common Law Rights**

    Thank you in advance for any constructive thoughts in this very serious and unmerited matter… JD.
