Montana has over 600 credit union volunteers currently serving on credit union boards, supervisory committees, and credit committees. Serving on a credit union board requires a lot of time and effort. In return, directors get no salary -- just the thanks of credit union staff and the members they serve (oh, and maybe a piece or two of pizza when the board meets over dinner time).
Here's to the work of these volunteers, their diligence, their community involvement, and the things their credit unions accomplish under their stewardship!
Early each year, the Network asks credit union professionals to nominate a volunteer for the Mitch Reed Volunteer of the Year Award. The award recipient is announced during the Award's Dinner at the MCUN Annual Convention, which is usually in late spring. To date, 33 volunteers -- many of them long-time directors -- have been honored. Here is the complete list, in chronological order.
