ROCHESTER, Minn. - The Leadership Team and Board of Directors of the Mayo Employees Federal Credit Union (MEFCU), at a recent Board meeting, honored their Board Chair, Kristie L. Jacobson, as a Credit Union Builder through the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation (MnCUF).

“The Credit Union Builder Award is being presented to Kristie for her faithful service to MEFCU since 2000 as she has steadily increased her responsibilities over time, contributing significantly to the ongoing growth and success of the organization,” said MEFCU President and CEO, Mary Hansen. “In appreciation for her gift of time and talent to our credit union, it is our sincere pleasure to honor Kristie with this award.”

Kristie began her volunteer work as a member of the Supervisory Committee in 2000 and then accepted the Chair role for the Supervisory Committee in 2001 and served in that role through 2004.  She continued her work on the Supervisory Committee until 2006 when she was elected to the Board of Director role.  In 2008 Kristie became Vice Chair of the Board and moved into the Chair role in 2014, which she continues to serve.

Jacobson joins 36 other individuals who have been honored since 2008 with MnCUF’s Credit Union Builder Award. The names of the recipients and the contributing credit unions are permanently displayed in the Minnesota Credit Union Network’s lobby as a tribute to their accomplishments. The honorees receive a plaque from the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation, and donors are also listed online and in the MnCUF’s annual report.
