The Importance of Volunteerism

November 28, 2018 7:30 am

If you are looking for a break from holiday stress and hectic nature of that time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, take  26 minutes to listen to this recent CUNA Podcast The Importance of Volunteerism. It features Jean Peterson, Aberdeen FCU board member and her thoughts on being a credit union board member.

From her upbringing on a ranch in South Dakota and the work ethic it instilled to the advocacy work she is doing as part of CUNA’s Volunteer Leadership Committee, there are nuggets every board member can benefit from. She even discusses an associate board member program, onboarding volunteers, and what she feels their credit union does for members.

I know I enjoyed it, and it is easy to see why Jean was named a 2018 Rock Star!
