Minnco Credit Union Board Chair Honored
The Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN) presented the 2019 Outstanding Credit Union Volunteer of the Year Award to Jerry Schleicher, Board Chair of Minnco Credit Union. The award was presented at a ceremony during the MnCUN 2019 Annual Conference in April.
The Volunteer of the Year Award is given to an extraordinary credit union volunteer who best represents the credit union spirit through dedication to, and belief in, the credit union movement. Recipients are chosen based on their involvement with credit unions, along with participation in activities that better their communities.
Schleicher comes from a strong credit union tradition: his mother was one of the first employees of the credit union and his father was a former board member and chair of Minnco. Jerry has served on the credit union’s board of directors for 22 years and has been the board chair for the past 8 years.
“Jerry is living out that legacy that his father and his mother started many decades ago,” said Doug Hallstrom, President/CEO of Minnco Credit Union. “He is more than deserving of this award and we are thankful for his involvement at Minnco and in our communities.”
