CU advocates earn lifetime achievement awards from PCUA
HARRISBURG, Pa. (3/13/14)--Kipp Stecher, retired CEO of $159 million-asset AmeriChoice FCU, Mechanicsburg, Pa., has been selected as the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association's 2014 Outstanding Credit Union Professional of the Year.

Charles Lantz, a board member at $109 million-asset Hidden River FCU, Pottsville, Pa., was named the association's 2014 Outstanding Credit Union Volunteer of the Year (Life is a Highway March 12).
 
Stecher retired at the end of 2013 after more than 30 years in the credit union movement. He started his career in 1979 as manager of IBM Pennsylvania Central FCU, with six employees and limited services. The credit union changed its name to AmeriChoice FCU, and converted its charter from a single select-employee group to a four-county community charter. AmeriChoice now has seven branches and 65 employees.
 
Stecher served on the board of the Pennsylvania Credit Union Service Centers Inc. and was vice chairman from 2005 to 2008.

Lantz has served on the board of Hidden River FCU for more than 40 years. His credit union volunteer experience began in 1970 when he was asked to fill a vacancy on the board of the Schuylkill County School Employees CU. He has served as board president/chairman since 1984.
 
He was involved in the Anthracite Chapter of Credit Unions and served as chapter president.
 
The Lifetime Achievement Awards will be presented during the closing banquet at the PCUA's annual convention, May 20, in Atlantic City, N.J.
