BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (4/24/09)--The Alabama Credit Union League honored league President/CEO Gary Wolter during the league’s annual meeting in Destin, Fla. Wolter, who will retire in July, was recognized for his 47 years of service to the credit union industry with a league Distinguished Service Award. The Gary B. Wolter Lifetime Achievement Education scholarship also was established.
“Alabama’s credit unions, indeed credit unions across the world, would not be where they are today without Gary’s vision and contributions,” said League of Southeastern Credit Unions Chair-elect Joe McGee. The Alabama league and Florida league recently combined to form the league. The Distinguished Service Award is the Alabama league’s highest honor and has been given to three other recipients. The scholarship will allow credit unions to attend educational seminars, conferences and workshops.
