CU Magazine wants your vote for CU Hero
MADISON, Wis. (4/24/14)--Voting for Credit Union Magazine's 2014 Credit Union Hero of the Year is open until May 1.
The annual award honors individuals who exemplify the "people helping people" philosophy and who have gone above and beyond to expand credit union services in their communities. Candidates are nominated by Credit Union Magazine readers.
This year's nominees are:
  • William Armstrong, co-founder and board member, Northeast Community CU, Elizabethton, Tenn., is a "pillar of wisdom and knowledge" for the $99 million-asset credit union, according to CEO Kathy Campbell.
  • Dan Morrisey, CEO/treasurer of $2 million-asset Queen of Peace Arlington (Va.) FCU, spends his retirement keeping track of the onslaught of regulations that his small credit union faces.
  • William "Bill" Rissel, president/CEO, Fort Knox FCU, Radcliff, Ky. Rissel, who is retiring this year, has seen success beyond the doors of the $1.2 billion-asset credit union.
  • Joni Senkpeil, director of small credit union development, Illinois Credit Union League, started the Small Asset Size Credit Union Advisory Group. Senkpeil has developed a network of resources for small credit unions.
The winner will be honored at the Credit Union National Association's America's Credit Union Conference, set for June 29 to July 3 in San Francisco.
