ACU employee a finalist in international Next Top Credit Union Executive competition
June 21, 2010 Winnipeg, Manitoba - Jodi Chambers, Director, Business Excellence with Winnipeg’s Assiniboine Credit Union, was voted one of six regional finalists for the Credit Union Executives Society’s Next Top Credit Union Executive challenge.
Next Top Credit Union Exec applicants needed to be age 35 or under, employed by a credit union, and create a 60-second video outlining the details of their credit union project. The online public voted for their favourite in each of six geographical regions: five in the USA, one in Canada.
Chambers submitted details of the credit union’s Process Excellence Program and received more votes than the other entrants in the Canada Region.
Chambers won a $5,000 prize package, including registration, accommodation and airfare to CUES' CEO/Executive Team Network™ in Dallas, November 7–10, 2010. While in Dallas, Chambers competed against the other five regional finalists who faced off for the grand prize - a CUES educational package valued at $20,000 and the honour of being named the Next Top Credit Union Exec.
Over the following months, Chambers and the other finalists provided updates on their projects’ progress at the website www.NextTopCreditUnionExec.com.
