Icon Credit Union CEO Connie Miller Awarded an Idaho Business Review Icon Award
During Miller’s time at Icon, she’s overseen a rebranding, trained employees on advocacy, and expanded the credit union’s services.
The Idaho Business Review recently held its annual Icon Awards ceremony, honoring several Idaho business leaders, including Connie Miller, President and CEO of Icon Credit Union.
Miller has served as President and CEO for 10 years. In that time, the credit union’s achieved many successes, with $250 million in assets, and seen several changes, including the credit union’s name change – formerly Idahy Federal Credit Union—and rebranding in 2010. After its rebrand, the credit union opened two new facilities in Meridian and Boise, Idaho.
Last year, at the Northwest Credit Union Association’s annual convention, MAXX 2017, Miller was presented with an Advocate of the Year award for her advocacy efforts and political fundraising training for her entire staff. She was also recognized for her work as co-chair of the Association’s Idaho Governmental Affairs Committee and her participation in NWCUA advocacy initiatives.
The Idaho Business Review’s Icon awards recognize a pioneering spirit, community service, and leadership. This year 16 professionals were recognized on Aug. 7 at the Boise Centre East.
“It’s truly an honor to be recognized for this Idaho Icon award, especially among the inspiring group of honorees from our state,” Miller said. “Serving in our Idaho communities and in credit unions all these years has provided me so many opportunities to pay it forward and make a difference. I’m forever grateful for that.
I especially love the name of this award, as I recall when we named Icon Credit Union several years ago and the reason we selected the name. It was about creating something of significance and being iconic in the lives of our members. I’m grateful for so many of my community friends and credit union peers who have always been a strong support in my journey, and also to those who have consistently provided the opportunities to share my time, treasure, and talents over the years.”
Tracey Stone, recruitment and marketing manager at MassMutual Idaho, helped judge the Icon entries this year and noted the decision was difficult. The nominees were accomplished, with long track records of successful careers and community service, she said.
