PLYMOUTH, Mich. (5/29/08)--The Michigan Credit Union League (MCUL) honored former chairman Robert Huston and Raul Alvarez, marketing director at Financial Plus CU, during the 2008 MCUL Annual Convention and Exposition. Huston, retired president/CEO at Co-op Services CU, was presented the league’s highest honor, the Distinguished Service Award. The award includes automatic induction into the Michigan Credit Union Hall of Fame. Huston already is a member of the Hall as of 2002, when he finished his term as a league chief elected official (Michigan Monitor May 26). Alvarez received the Michigan Credit Union Foundation 2008 Credit Union Community Volunteer Award. Huston has been active in the international credit union movement, attending conferences in Poland, Australia, Africa, Canada and the Czech Republic. He has provided assistance and training visitors from Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. He also helped the league enter into an international partnership with Macedonia through the World Council of Credit Unions. Alvarez has served on several boards and committees, and has volunteered for community organizations, including schools, Boy Scouts of America, the United Way and Junior Achievement of Mid-Michigan. The MCUL board unanimously approved the recommendations for Huston and Alvarez April 23. MCUL’s convention was held May 15-17 in Grand Rapids, Mich.
