BOISE, Idaho (8/31/11)--The Idaho Credit Union League celebrates its 75th anniversary on Sept. 12. “This is a momentous milestone in the life of any enterprise, but especially so for our Idaho’s credit union movement,” said league President/CEO Alan Cameron. “With our relatively small population and economy, Idaho’s credit unions have relied upon their tradition of service as the foundation for the success they have enjoyed. “Out of hundreds of credit unions formed by Idahoans since 1935, the 59 credit unions in business today are here because of the good things they have brought to the lives of their members.” Nine credit unions joined together in September 1936 to form the league. Since then, it has evolved from an organization operated by volunteers to a full-service, fully staffed trade association providing assistance and support with regulatory compliance, educational offerings, communications assistance, financial products and service recommendations. The league will host an open house at its office from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (MT) on Sept. 12. Formal ceremonies begin at 11 a.m.
