Recognizing the credit union difference that makes credit unions, as a group, more service oriented and involved in their communities, the trade publication, Banker & Tradesman invited their readership to nominate individuals who stand out among credit union staffers. They dubbed these special few “Credit Union Heroes.”
Criteria included service within the credit union, both as providing superior service for members and nurturing guidance to other staff members. They were also chosen by the quality and quantity of caring service provided to members of the community at large.
From the many nominations, the Editorial Board of Banker & Tradesman selected 11 credit union staffers to receive the Credit Union Hero award. The League salutes these heroes in the credit union movement and offers them our heartiest congratulations. May they continue to make us all proud!
The stories of these credit union heroes were told in a special section of Banker & Tradesman in its September 10 edition:
SVP Business Development and Community Relations, Metro Credit Union
Vice President, Administration, Everett Credit Union
Assistant Vice President, Marketing and Communications Manager, Workers’ Credit Union
