BLOOMINGTON, Minn.

The Volunteer of the Year Award is given to a 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 at the local and state levels, along with participation in activities that better their communities. The Outstanding Credit Union Volunteer of the Year Award honor was awarded to Pam Tschida, Board Chair of Hiway Federal Credit Union.
The Professional of the Year Award is given to a remarkable person who truly stands behind the “people helping people” credit union philosophy. This year, the Minnesota Credit Union Network’s honoree for Outstanding Credit Union Professional of the Year Award went to Debora Almirall, President of Minnesota Power Employees Credit Union.
The Simon Hellermann Philanthropy Award recognizes demonstrated excellence in credit union philanthropy and contributions to the credit union movement in Minnesota. This award – established in 1999 as a tribute to Minnesota credit union philanthropist Simon Hellermann – recognizes an outstanding contribution to a humanitarian cause and also promotes credit union philanthropy, service and loyalty. The 2018 award was given to St. Cloud Federal Credit Union for their KIVA Financial Education program in partnership with Sartell High School.
