Anderson commented, “I appreciate the Board’s confidence in electing me Chairman of the organization for an additional term. I look forward to working with our new Executive team, talented group of Board members and Executive Director. While we have accomplished a great deal the last 2 years, there is still much to be done. When I became Chairman in 2015, I committed the organization to a bold vision of: transformational change, transformational growth and transformational service to our members. At our recent conference in Raleigh North Carolina, we saw this vision progressing towards fruition. The conference was a huge success; we pinned 25 new members during the new member orientation ceremony. Also, to embrace the ideas and skills from Millennials and Gen X’ers, we launched our inaugural Young Professionals Summit for credit union professionals 40 and under. This initiative was one of the highlights of the conference.
To wrap up the week, we honored Bill Bynum, President/CEO of Hope Credit Union, with the Pete Crear Lifetime Achievement Award, inducted Isaac Dickson, Chairman of the Board at Carolina Foothills FCU, Robert S. Watson, Sr., Board Director at American Spirit FCU and Bert J. Hash, Jr., retired President/CEO of MECU of Baltimore, Inc., into the AACUC’s African American Credit Union Hall of Fame.”

He has over 30 years of financial services experience at credit unions and banks, serving in a myriad of capacities including board director for credit unions and CUSOs. His work history encompasses Vice President and COO at American Spirit Federal Credit Union; Vice President and COO at the Treasury Department Federal Credit Union; Manager at the United States Senate Federal Credit Union; Vice President of Operations at Equitable and Independence Banks; and, Assistant Vice President and Financial Center Manager at BB&T and M&T Banks.
