Fisher presented N.C. CU advocate award
RALEIGH, N.C. (9/4/12)--North Carolina State Rep. Susan Fisher (D-114th) accepted the CU Advocate Award Aug. 28 at the North Carolina Credit Union League's Western Chapter meeting in Waynesville, N.C.

Fisher was one of three members of the state's General Assembly the league recognized with Credit Union Advocate Awards for their support in helping credit unions pass Save to Win legislation. Also honored were Reps. Efton Sager (R) and Sen. Rick Gunn (R). Sager attended the league's annual meeting in June to accept the award.

"I have to share this award with other people in the General Assembly because the bill we shepherded was really an example of the miracle of bi-partisanship," Fisher told the league (Weekly Conversation Aug. 31). "Any time I can find a chance to work across the aisle with my colleagues I will do that."

Fisher added that Save to Win will "spur on savings from among all your (members) during a really difficult financial time. North Carolina Credit Unions are to be applauded for providing an innovative incentive program for savings."

The league's Credit Union Advocate Award honors state and federal legislators who have demonstrated a clear and consistent understanding of and appreciation for credit unions.
