CU Magazine seeks movement's rock stars
MADISON, Wis. (5/19/14)--Nominations are now open for this year's Credit Union Magazine's Credit Union Rock Stars--individuals who demonstrate outstanding innovation and creativity in their chosen fields for the betterment of the credit union movement.
 
Nominations are due July 7.
 
"Last year, we honored nearly 50 outstanding individuals as Credit Union Rock Stars--and we know there are many more out there," said Ann Hayes Peterson, Credit Union Magazine's acting editor-in-chief. "We look forward to the 2014 round of nominations, showcasing the inspiring people who have not only furthered the credit union mission, but made it their own."
 
Credit Union Rock Stars are individuals with the passion and drive to put bright ideas into action and champion the credit union ideal of "people helping people." Their contributions range from teaching weeklong money camps and developing a new conference to forming a credit union-themed band and becoming a superhero to fight off predatory lenders.
 
Among last year's Credit Union Rock Stars was Laura Aguirre, president/CEO of $32 million-asset Hawaii First FCU, Kamuela, Hawaii. She helped her credit union earn its low-income designation and Native Community Development Financial Institution certification. The credit union serves the community with free access to job-seeking assistance, credit and debt management, one-on-one financial counseling and financial education workshops.

Rock stars are selected for their dedication and accomplishments in the following pursuits:
  • Raising the bar on creativity, strategy and execution;
  • Taking a unique approach their work; and
  • Possessing the admirable qualities of a role model.
This year's Credit Union Rock Stars will be showcased in a bonus issue of Credit Union Magazine and online.
