In recognition of his service and dedication, First Alliance Credit Union has honored Harold “Harry” Wobschall as a Credit Union Builder through the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation. Harry was an active member of the First Alliance Credit Union Board of Directors for an amazing 51 years, retiring at the end of 2019.
Harry held numerous positions on the Board of Directors, retiring as the Vice Chair of the board and Chair of the Facilities and Security committees.

Created in 2008, the Credit Union Builder Award honors an individual’s dedication to the success, growth, and vitality of the not-for-profit financial movement in Minnesota. Dedications are typically made at a special time of significance to acknowledge an individual’s contributions to credit unions.
In total, 74 individuals have been designated as Credit Union Builders over the past nine years. 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 those who have dedicated time and energy to building the credit union movement.
