Inaugural Credit Union Champion Award Presented at MAXX
October 23, 2018
MAXX 2018 marked the inaugural year for the Credit Union Champion Award. This honor recognizes an individual who not only has demonstrated their belief in the credit union movement but who has stood firm in the face of adversity. It was with great excitement and pride that NWCUA and Washington credit unions presented Washington State Senator Lynda Wilson (R-WA17) with the 2018 Credit Union Champion Award.
Sen. Wilson started her career in a credit union and the credit union family quickly became her rock. She took her dedication and passion for credit unions to Olympia where as a member of the Legislature, she has stood with credit unions time and time again. Sen. Wilson was a key supporter of the public funds deposits legislation this year and made a bold speech on the Senate floor in favor of the bill.
