Minnesota Recognizes Outstanding Volunteer, Professional of the Year
The Minnesota Credit Union Network has named as its Outstanding Credit Union Volunteer of the Year Ron Nevala of Anoka Hennepin CU, six-year chairman and board member since 1996. Nevala was recognized for playing "an instrumental leadership role in the dramatic and continued growth of his credit union, and is dedicated to supporting credit unions on the local, state and national levels." The Outstanding Credit Union Professional of the Year Award went to Steve Ahlness of Greater Minnesota Credit Union. "Under 27 years of his leadership, GMCU now has five branch offices and assets have grown to exceed $138 million dollars," said the MCUN, also pointing to Ahlness' ongoing participation in governmental affairs at the state and federal levels.
