The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Karen Mason as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in the financial industry. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting 850,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.
“I’m pleased to present Karen with this important honor,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her knowledge and expertise in the financial industry are valuable assets to her clients and community.”
When Karen Mason was unsatisfied with her working life, a friend who worked at a credit union encouraged her to apply for a position. Applying for that one job would lead to a 12-year career in the credit union and financial industry.
“The most rewarding part of my career is knowing that I can give our members a place they can trust with their finances,” said Ms. Mason. “The challenge in that is making sure the credit union stays financially sound.” Ms. Mason is responsible for providing financial services to the credit union’s members.
A self-described organized person and an effective leader, Ms. Mason easily moved up from her role as a Member Service Representative to a Manager and CEO. “I hope to grow the credit union so other members of the community feel they have a place where they can conduct their financial business,” Ms. Mason said.
In addition to her full-time position at the credit union, Ms. Mason raised her daughter and earned her Associate’s degree in Business Management / Accounting from Fairmont State University. She is also involved with Moose International, is a Notary Professional and supports the American Heart Walk and the American Cancer Society.
NAPW’s mission is to provide an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
