Achtenberg honored by NYIB
LAS VEGAS (8/14/08)--LeAnn Achtenberg, vice president of marketing for Anoka Hennepin CU, Coon Rapids, Minn., was recognized with the National Youth Involvement Board (NYIB) Advocate Award at the NYIB Annual Conference July 28-31. The new award recognizes an individual’s continued dedication to the NYIB as an advocate of the organization and as an active member of the NYIB Network. Achtenberg is the first recipient of the NYIB Advocate Award, which will be presented annually. “As the NYIB Network continues to grow, we are proud to thank and honor those individuals who have been dedicated to improving the NYIB and are committed to youth financial literacy,” said John Faries, NYIB chairman emeritus. Achtenberg has been actively involved in NYIB for more than a decade. From 1997 to 2004, she volunteered with the NYIB as regional coordinator, secretary and media manager. She also served as chair from 2002 to 2004. During that time, Achtenberg spearheaded the creation of the Googolplex@school program, a financial literacy program for middle schools. She also serves as chair of the Minnesota Family Involvement Council, a committee of the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation dedicated to enhancing the future of the credit union movement by promoting financial awareness, financial education and full-family involvement in Minnesota credit unions.
