LAS VEGAS (7/30/10)--Stan Hollen, president/CEO of CO-OP Financial Services, has received the first of what will be an annual award for contributions to worldwide credit union women’s leadership development from the Global Women’s Leadership Network, a program of World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU).

The award was accepted by Kimberley Hester, CO-OP Financial Services’ executive vice president of network services, at a reception for the 2010 Global Women’s Leadership Forum held in conjunction with The 1 Credit Union Conference, the recent joint event co-sponsored by the Credit Union National Association and WOCCU. “Stan Hollen is a key leader within the credit union industry,” said Susan Mitchell, network chair and CEO of credit union consulting firm Mitchell, Stankovic & Associates in Boulder City, Nev. “He believes in developing future leaders-- especially women leaders--throughout the credit union movement. His actions support the network’s vision to provide women with the resources to make a measurable difference in the lives of each other, of credit union members and their communities.” Hollen was recognized for his ongoing support of individual U.S. women credit union leaders, and of the Global Women’s Leadership Network, according to Mitchell. At Hollen’s direction, CO-OP Financial Services sponsored the network’s inaugural golf outing, an event that raised more than $40,000 for the network. “It is with pleasure that I accept this award from WOCCU and The Global Women’s Leadership Network,” said Hollen. “I believe in supporting the credit union industry and leadership development is of critical importance as we face future challenges. It is an honor to know that I have helped to create opportunities for women.” The Global Women’s Leadership Network is designed to foster networking and professional growth for women credit union leaders worldwide. It has seen rapidly growing participation at its annual forum, held earlier this month as part of The 1 Credit Union Conference in Las Vegas (News Now July 12).
